DHL Global Mail, often referred to as DHL eCommerce, offers several services designed for the online shopping market. They offer shipment tracking via a partnership delivery method that coordinated with national postal services internationally. DHL Global Mail is separate from DHL which offers full door-to-door courier services. The aim of DHL Global Mail is to provide hybrid cross-courier affordable postage options, but with tracking services available as standard. Because it is an economy service, shipping times can be longer than with other major courier networks.
Those shipping with DHL Global Mail can choose from multiple sending options. For example, with the DHL Global Mail Packet Plus Priority service, packages will be collected by DHL agents from your warehouse or distribution facility, appraised for packaging and postage costs and delivered via national postal services. Alternatively, DHL Packet Plus International Standard facilitates international business to customer shipping to over 220 countries with various transit times for items up to 2 kg. The service includes simplified postal customs clearance, milestone tracking with delivery confirmation in critical destinations and an additional insurance option.

DHL Global Mail handles the international transit and then hands over to local postal services to manage the in-country delivery. The universal postage tracker allows clients to track packages wherever they are in the world. There are also email and text alerts available to monitor delivery progress.
