    DHL: Warp Speed

    Put an order in with HC on Friday night, expecting the DHL courier to show up this morning.
    No hang-ups with customs what so ever, the order even has nic in it. Colour me stunned, haha.



    Nice work HealthCabin and DHL. Will definitely use again.

    That's awesome!

    Just beware if you live in a rural/remote area it will cost another $30 to hand on to another courier.

    The only way this can be so fast is if DHL have a live body at the packing point, who confirms the package and contents with a signature. This would minimize Customs in China and at this end. They would also confirm correct packaging and labeling of Lithium Batteries. If this is the case, nice one HC. I am pretty sure that no DHL cargo moves on a passenger aircraft, which simplifies things all round.
    Because I trust no-one Who tells me FACTS with no proof

    Seems to depend on the vendor. The two China orders I've placed recently had DHL slightly cheaper on one and slightly dearer on the other.

    DHL is faster I think and I went with them both times.

    This time around DHL and EMS were identical in pricing for me, $15.80. I went with DHL because I've used them before. Other than that I'm not certain.

    Apparently customs have been sending back boxes of liquids to HC if sent through ems ( causing delays )
    This is a copy of email they sent me ( it was free shipping )

    Dear *******
    since ems is greatly effected right now by china president election.
    This order contains liquid,
    if we send this order by ems as before,it may get troubles to get through china customs more likely.
    Therefore we plan to send this order by dhl.
    Because dhl can get through china customs easily and it is faster than ems.
    however it also have one problem:
    since dhl requests a signature for delivery,so it canot be left at front door.
    you need to sign for delivery.
    Please get back to us asap, whether you agree us to send this order by dhl or not.

    regards!
