Packaging requirements

It's your responsibility as a sender to provide adequate and secure packaging, which can be loaded with other goods and withstand road transport in tarpaulin-covered trucks. 

Secure packaging allows for stacking, helps to withstand shocks, pressure and vibrations/shaking during transportation and storage. Proper robust packaging prevents the package from causing damage to other shipments, DHL Express or third parties.

A shipping label must be provided for and applied to each parcel/pallet.

When your shipments are being picked up, it's important to make sure that the driver signs your End of Day list. You can easily print this list from your Shipmondo account. This serves as your evidence that the shipment has been transferred to the carrier and can be crucial in the event of a possible loss claim.
