DHL Global Mail Rate Increase: June 2016

Each year, parcel carriers announce rate increases to coincide with market factors.

Effective January 2, 2016, DHL Global Mail increased their rates across a variety of different service levels. Over the past five months, Ingram Micro has been actively working with DHL Global Mail to provide the most competitive rate for you, our customer. This is largely due to USPS rate increases and DHL Global Mail’s reliance on the post office for the final mile.

At the end of May, Ingram Micro systems will update DHL services.

  • DHL Global Mail Rates for Packet Priority International and Packet Plus Priority International will increase by 20% on average.
  • DHL Lightweight Parcel will increase by 12.8% on average.
  • The rate increases listed above are averages. The actual increases will vary based on weight and zone. Rate increases will be reflected on your billing statements beginning in the month of June. Should you have any questions, please reach out to
