DHL Global Forwarding has launched myDHLi Quote & Book to compare quotes and make bookings for air and ocean freight, and door-to-door shipments.
The service allows customers to directly compare available options including DHL Ocean Connect as well as two speeds for airfreight, DHL Air Connect and DHL Air Economy.
Users can also book transport insurance for the shipment, with the service available at quote.mydhli.com.
Saying the new service will continue the company’s digital transformation, Tim Scharwath, CEO of DHL Global Forwarding says: “During the development of myDHLi Quote & Book, we listened to our customers’ needs and improved upon our prior online tool. We added new features, increased coverage and implemented a highly intuitive user interface to achieve a simple and effective customer experience.”
The tool allows access to air and ocean freight quotes, allowing customers to compare rates and lead times to select the best option.
For airfreight, customers can choose between DHL Air Connect with typical delivery times of 3-5 days, and DHL Air Economy, a cost-effective option that uses alternative carriers and routes to deliver in about 5-7 days.
Both booking options cover general cargo up to two tonnes per shipment.
DHL Global Forwarding is one of the first freight forwarders offering an insurance option with its online quotation and booking service, with customers selecting the right transport mode and product, and the good’s value.
