International – Import

DHL’s import services allow you to arrange for a shipment to be collected in another country and to have it delivered to Ireland, or even a third country.

Imports made simple

In addition to delivering your documents and parcels from Ireland to virtually every country in the world, we can also take care of your importing requirements. Your imports are collected by DHL Express in the origin country and travel door to door through our fully integrated network.

Aside from providing you with visibility at all times on the status of your shipments, using our import services offers numerous benefits for you, the Importer, and the Shipper:

  • Dedicated import account: A single account number can be used to manage all of your importing activity, providing improved transparency.
  • Local tariff: Up front pricing in euro means you know in advance how much your imports will cost. It also removes the uncertainty created by exchange rate fluctuations.
  • Global reach: You can arrange imports with DHL Express from 214 countries and territories.
  • Speed when you need it: All of our services can be used for imports. DHL EXPRESS WORLDWIDE offers delivery by close of business on the next possible working day and, when you need a shipment delivered to you earlier in the working day, DHL EXPRESS 12:00 and DHL EXPRESS 9:00 services are also available to selected postcode areas. Imports are also possible within Europe using DHL ECONOMY SELECT.
  • Delivery to Ireland or a third country: You can have your imports delivered to any address in Ireland or even an address in another country. Having goods shipped directly from your suppliers to your customers helps make your supply chain more efficient, reducing inventory costs and the cost of onward distribution. For example you can have goods shipped from a factory in China to a customer in Germany, billed and paid for in Ireland.
  • Innovative online shipping tool: You can manage your importing activity using our shipping tools.
  • Less work for your suppliers: Your suppliers will save time by not having to arrange shipping
