Frequently asked questions about DHL international shipping and prices

  • Will I receive a tracking number for my shipment sent through DHL?

Yes, for every shipment, whether it is a parcel or a big cargo, you will receive a tracking number that will help you follow the transit of your shipment.


  • What happens if the DHL tracking number appears as being “not found”?

One of the reasons could be that a different tracking number than the one you were provided with, was in fact assigned to your shipment.

If you booked the services on Eurosender platform and your DHL tracking number returns the status “not found”, don’t hesitate to contact us and we will help you.


  • What is the difference between DHL tracking and DHL air waybill?

When it comes to DHL tracking number, this is the code assigned to your shipment, that allows you to check its current location. You can use the DHL tracking tool to monitor the transit of your shipment and, if the service was booked on Eurosender platform, you can as well use our tracking tool.

The difference between the DHL tracking and the DHL air waybill is that the latter is a document that contains essential information about the cargo when the transportation is done by air. DHL has a dedicated section on its website where customers can use their DHL air waybill to track the current location of the cargo. When your shipment is operated by sea, you will have to indicate container number to track it.


  • How can you find a DHL collection or drop-off point?

In order to get accurate information about the DHL local depot and their collection and drop-off points, we suggest checking their website. You will find all the necessary information in order to locate a DHL collection or drop-off point or service centre in your area.

  • What does DHL attempted delivery mean?

Attempted delivery simply means that the courier driver tried to deliver the shipment but the consignee was not present at the address.

Usually, before the DHL attempts delivery, the courier calls the consignee and arranges the delivery details together. To avoid the failed DHL delivery attempts it is essential to give an accurate delivery address and make sure that the delivery location is easy to reach.

When such things happen, you need to take a redelivery request card and appoint another date for delivery. DHL undelivered shipment might also mean that your package cannot be transported and delivered to the place of destination because it is improperly packaged, contains forbidden items, or its shipping label is damaged.
