DHL Shipping Company - Overview

DHL shipping was set up in the United States in 1969 to specialize in the express shipping of documents from San Francisco to Honolulu in Hawaii. The original thinking and reliability of the company led to its rapid expansion, and today DHL international shipping serves over four million customers worldwide.
DHL offers extensive tracking services that enable you to track the progress of your shipment from door to door. Some of the tracking options to choose from include reference tracking, e-mail tracking, text message tracking, phone tracking and WAP tracking.
DHL shipping’s most significant expansion occurred in 2003 when it merged with two other shipping companies, Danzas and Deutsche Post. The result of the merger was a consolidated company specializing in logistic solutions, parcel and document delivery and express services. The company currently operates in over 220 regions including the Far East, Eastern Europe and China.
