30 elephants each year in paper

Paperless trade

The weight of 30 elephants, that’s the yearly weight of paper we use per person. We already know that nature is having a rough time. But, did you realise that each year 8.8 million hectares of forests are felled to process in paper?

It’s time for a renewal: Paperless Trade.

Paper what?

Paperless Trade (PLT) is a service where a customer can send a Commercial Invoice (and other Customs documents) as images to DHL Express electronically. No more printing!

What is, except a good conscience, in it for you?

  • Save time – don’t need to print your invoice and add it to the shipment.
  • Save money – no costs for printing and paper
  • Eco-friendly – less use of paper and printing
  • Own corporate identity – branding
    Upload your own digital signature and corporate logo and add it to every invoice.
  • Faster customs clearance
  • Free of charge

How does it work?

DHL’s Paperless Trade is available for our Time Definite services, including Economy Select. Actually, it’s very easy to activate. Once the option is activated, the service will automatically appear when booking a new shipment – and it’s free! Activate this service via our online shipping tools or contact your sales representative.
