Yesterday, the carrier announced an increase of their US prices by 5.9%. The rate change is set to take place on 1st January 2012.
DHL Express, which is owned by the Deutsche Post DHL, justified the price increase due to account inflation and dramatically rising network costs.
By doing so, DHL joins other courier companies and parcel services including UPS or FedEx which were also forced to increase their - primarily air and freight - rates by 5,9 to 6.9%.
