A rant from Italy, where a parcel containing live plants for my garden arrived from the UK on December 2.
On each day since then, 6 so far, it's gone out for delivery...and been returned to (I think) a sub-contractors depot.
For the past week, I've phoned DHL on their premium-rate number and have basically been told lies. 'It's definitely arriving tomorrow...' ' We've made it highest priority...' etc etc
DHL Head Office in Milan buckpass to DHL in England. DHL in England buckpass to DHL in Milan.
Nobody attempts to accept responsibility or gives a rat's rear end about the fact that a parcel they've been trusted to deliver is rolling round on the back of some white van somewhere for a week.
Even the company in England who sent me the package are getting the brush-off. They tell me I'm not the first of their customers DHL have screwed this year. Guess which well-known international courier they;re not going to use any more.
The name of that company again - DHL. That's D - H - L.
Never, ever even think of using this company.
A wristwatch was delivered to a buyer in germany in september 18th.After 2 months the buyer complaint as the watch has not been delivered as well the DHL sent to the Japanese post a declaration of delivery on september 29th but not listed on the tracking page.
I dont know what to think is the DHL people did stolen my watch or the final receiver is accomplice with them.
Im very upset about it as the buyer opened a dispute through paypal and mabe after get his money back he will get the watch too.
How the world gone bad...I hope someone read this message and can do something in order to stop such awful actions.
My neighbour Mr. Franklin Bah, an employee of DHL Limbe, Cameroon admitted to poisoning my cat on the night of 08/11/09.
Three weeks ago I found my cat (Simba) barely alive with deep cuts all over its body. It turned out that Simba had been rescued by the night watchman out of a trap set for him by the afore mentioned neighbour.
I took Simba to the veterinary and behold, just as he recovered from his injuries I found Simba dead next to my shop on the morning of 09/11/2009. On 11/11/2009 my wife and I took turns to confront Mr Bah about the death of our cat and he stopped short of telling us why, but admitted that he killed Simba!!
We have had Simba for a year and a half and he over time became a symbol for our cocktail bar, ARNE. Mr Bah was fully aware of how much my wife and I as well as our customers adored Simba. He passed by every single working day and watched keenly as we interacted with our cat.
Murdering Simba seemed nothing less than a premeditated and well planned act with very malicious intent carried out by Mr Bah. As it is often said, “you get a man through his pet.”
I at this stage fear for my safety and that of my family because I do not know what other evil Mr Bah has planned against us.
The case has been handed over the police.
Below is a photograph of the DHL office in Limbe, Cameroon. Not really representative of DHL international, nor do it's employees uphold the image of the company.
My parcel that was sent to me has not arrived? On the tracking it states driver input:
'No One To Receive Card Left 02/11/2009 12:03:01 ASHTON HOME DELIVERY'
I was in all morning sitting 4 feet away from my front door untill 1.40pm -and can prove this!
Please can you provide evidence that your driver actually arrived yesterday at 12:03pm.
Watch out for black driver with long braided hair by name of
M Witter, area west London.
he has a habit of knocking boxes about when he collects them.
He also switches the stickers if you have a delivery going to more than one address. The boxes end up in the wrong countries.
This has happened 3 times already.
e.g 2 boxes going to 2 different addresses and clearly marked addresses but if he switched the labels. the boxes end up in different countries.
then DHL will have to reship at their cost and they do.
I have complained to DHL but they keep the same driver.
Everyone should complain to DHL if this happens its not an accidental mistake.
DHL, just a terrible service provider. I paid for express mail internationally and turns out they don't...
Lazy delivery driver - I have waited in all day for a parcel, have called up when it wasnt here by 5pm to be...
We sent invitation and air ticket - (docs to apply to SA Embassy for visa) from Cape Town, South Africa to Saratov, Russia with DHL. They delived it to Tarawa, Kiribati, and it is already two weeks late, the air ticket is not valid for the Embassy already. They didn't care when we told them, they try to persuade us that Kiribati is in Russia!!!
I spent 50 USD on phone call from Saratov to Cape Town office, they didn't apologise and did nothing, it is still in Tarawa Kiribati, more than that, they asked me to call to Tarawa mysel[censored] (More expenses and more and more, I lost money on air ticket already)
The most bad thing about DHL is that they tell you "don't worry, it is under control of our tracking deparment" and you lose your time, because you think they are telling truth, but then in couple of weeks, no, THEY LIED!!!
Liers and arrogant stupid staff on the phone !
I wish I could look into the eyes of that person who makes such mistakes (or see whatever system make them) and what is an IQ of south africans in DHL office ???????????? They claimed they really don't understand where The Russian Federation is.
YOu pay DHL twice more than any other courier service because you trust them, and do such TERRIBLE THINGS for you and talk rude to their customers, and their site doesn't register complaints !
You never know where is your stuff, they never know when it will be where you are .
I WANT FULL COMPENSATION FOR AIR TICKET, MY EXPENSES ON CALLING, SENDIGN SMSES, AND I GOT CERTIFICATE FROM A DOCTOR THAT I WASN'T FEELING WELL BECAUSE OF DHL.
Think very carefully do you want to have all those trouble or not, when you are going to send something important with DHL .

I live in a block of flats and for the last 9 months someone who works for DHL has moved in. Our carpark is perfect for 5 cars but this guy parks the DHL van in such a way that only 3 cars can park. Not only that but he parks on top of my car all the time and has caused no end of damage to my passenger door,
Despite photos and witness' DHL don't care and they will not look into this, nor pass me their insurance details and yet every week my car is getting in worse and worse condition and the guy is giving me more and more grief
With due respect it is stated that I am your customer today 31-08-2009 I have received a document Air Way Bill: [protected] from Berkley Colleges New York United States.
Your regional staff member of Saddar Road Peshawar Pakistan Branch called me at my home and orders me to come and collect my Document from their office directly.
So if DHL is a Multi national service so why you are not delivering the mail to home addresses of the customers. It means that the customers are responsible to get their mail from your office directly so why have you hired the delivery staff. Then at 8 a.m I have collected the document from DHL office and it bothers me so much.
Kindly ask them about this problem.
I shall be waiting for a positive response from your side.

When dhl started to lay off employees signed an agreement to exstend benifits until 8/31/2009.ow 90 days before that date in this economy they with very litle notice terminated health benifits.This kind of behavior from corprate america should no longer be tolerated.
Well, Acer had set up a deal with DHL to collect laptops for repair. after waiting 10-15 mins on the phone to dhl i got my collection day, i.e. had to wait in a whole day for them to come and...no show. and no card and no apology. unbelievable.
back to the drawing board and on the phoen to dhl, no apology, in fact the lady on the line was pitching for a fight it felt, another day to wait in and...(i really am telling the truth here) no show!! im now going at my own expense to the local post office to get the parcel sent off.
DHl, no thanks...
The tracking history for my courier says "delivery attempted; recipient not home". However this is ABSOLUTELY FALSE since I was home all day on account of this very courier delivery. I was told with assurance that I would be receiving it yesterday but in spite of repeated phone calls, they failed to deliver.
If the company is covering up their own incompetence with such LIES on their services so as to write incorrect information on courier tracking ti is shameful. I do not know what is accountability anymore in today's world!
We send parcels internationally on ad-hoc basis and recently sent a package to the Czech Republic. The parcel was dropped off at their Minworth branch and paid for by credit card. We have been trying to obtain a valid receipt for this transaction ever since!!! All we received was an airway bill with the figures scribbled on by hand, no company VAT number. Have tried to complain to them three times but without any success. What sort of a company is this that seems incapable of issuing a valid receipt!
I received 11 boxes from DHL for a load of 192kg.
The nice DHL delivery personnel refused to help my wife get the packages just inside the property.
They also left the wooden delivery pallet on the public walkway, with risk to pedestrians.
Service being obviously not a company value, stick to regulations should at least be done with consistency.
I recently asked a relative to send me a computer hardware item from Germany. He used DHL to send it and according to DHL it should have been delivered by 7 days. Its been now more than 3 weeks and I still dont have it. turns out instead of Delivering the package to my doorstep they handed the package to the General Post Office who are causing me alot of inconvenience and truoble over the claiming of the package. Now is DHL a door to door Courier service as it is supposed to be or is it a door to Post office courier... Also the package I got before this one took 3 months to get to me via DHL...3 MONTHS!!! ... Its is my personal and professional opinion now that DHL is the WORST Courier service on the planet so far and I do not intend to use it ever again.
DHL are probably the worst people to deal with in the UK. If anything ever goes wrong with your shipment / delivery or invoicing, then you can be 100% sure that it will never ever be resolved.
We get stuff imported from Malaysia regularly. On 4th April we sent the payment to DHL to cover the import duty (same day that we received the invoice. The cheque was cleared on the 15th April and even today, then are sending threatening letters that they have not received the payment.
No one in their customer service can find any record on the system for anything so not even worth calling them. If you send email to their invoicing address, all you get is auto-reply.
We have not told out supplier in Malaysia that we will stop buying if they sue DHL again.
Avoid these oxygen watsers at all costs
A fraudulent buyer purchased our products and shipped via DHL Express to Gambia. We informed DHL of the shipment, requesting its return from DHL’s Gambia Offices. The DHL Research Department started initial procedures. We followed up with the Research Department and found ourselves redirected to the DHL Fraud Department.
Immediately following, we were subjected to silence as the fraud department ignored our daily phone calls and e-mails - forcing our attorney to send a demand letter to DHL Headquarters and the DHL Fraud Department, requesting the status of the shipment. Over the course of three weeks, and despite action from our attorney, the fraud department NEVER provided a verified answer regarding the location of our valuable shipment. The DHL Fraud Department was unjustifiably neglectful, forcing our company to start over with DHL’s Customer Service Department.
DHL Customer Service verified that our shipment was at the DHL Gambia Office. Under no circumstances should it have taken DHL a month to verify the shipment was within DHL Offices? This poor treatment continued as we negotiated the shipment’s return to the US.
For a one way return shipment through DHL Express we were quoted $16, 000 USD, an astronomical cost. As an alternative we were quoted $6, 400 USD for DHL Global Forwarding service, to which we agreed and authorized payment for shipment. To our shock, the price was increased to $9, 600 USD after negotiations and authorizations were completed.
We were threatened to either accept the price change or find another freight forwarder to move the shipment the very next day, or else the products would be auctioned in Gambia. This pricing bait and switch and threat of auction are absolutely inexcusable from a reputable company. We were forced to pay the high cost to avoid losing the shipment altogether.
DHL delivered a damaged and incomplete shipment to our location. In viewing pictures taken in Gambia, it is obvious that the damage and thievery to the shipment took place while in transit with DHL Global Forwarding. The shipment, which originally contained 26 products, came back unfathomably damaged and missing two products.
We are beyond disappointed in the unprofessional treatment we received from every department in DHL, the damage and theft subjected on our personal property and the lack of response we have received since.
I wish to draw your attention on the level of services offered to your customer.
My consignment AWB# [protected] containing my Debit Card was handed over DHL by my bank i.e. Mashreq Bank on 20th April (or may be earlier). I got a call from DHL on 20th morning informing that there is consignment for me. She said you will get the consignment by tomorrow or dayafter i.e. 21st / 22nd. I requested the lady to organize the delivery before end of the day 21st April, as I will not be available after that and I require the consignment urgently. It reflects that she has put the instruction in the dispatch slip.
Unfortunately despite request & promise by Customer Service, I did not get my consignment. This consignment came to my office on 22nd April. Being not in office, as I was attending Dubai Quality Award ceremony, I got a call from my office that there is a consignment for me, I asked my telephone operator to give the line to delivery person. I asked delivery person that this consignment was promised to reach me by yesterday, and despite my request and assurance why it was not delivered to me. I told him to bring the delivery by the evening. He said he can bring it by next day only (i.e.) Thursday. Unfortunately it did not get delivered on Thursday even.
This being my Debit Card, a replacement to my previous Card, I had to cancel my flight to India, which I was taking on Friday to attend my cousin brother marriage in Mumbai. I could not have gone to India, that too for marriage, without being able to withdraw funds.
It is really unfortunate that an organization like DHL Express, has such a level of service. I fail to understand if a local courier takes 1 week for delivery, then what Express courier Service means.
I am writing this mail in too much dejection from your service.
If this is your Service Levels, then God Bless DHL and more so the customers from the services of DHL.
I believe DHL management will take some clue from this incident and do something to save their image.
I was supposed to get a package from Europe and when I was tracking th epackage online it was bouncing back and forth from Wilmington to Germany. I then called in to question why it was not corrected . The Customer service had no clue what I was seing on their Website. They would not start a package track until the next 2 days. Finally I made another call to file a complaint the customer service did take it. They could not track a package and gave me all kinds of excuses . I told them that most or all packages on their plane has a bar code, why is it showing being scanned back and forth from the USA and Germany. They told me it was just the Cargo container as being scanned and not the actual package. If it was the container then all the other packages in the same container should be missing too? Well a week later they could not still find my package and were VERY VERY RUDE at me assuming I was dumb enough to accept their lame excuse for their lack of Preocess Controls. I was also told that the Bar code scamn we see on the tracking website is done by a person physically scanning the packages. Well how in the world would they loose a package if it was flagged as missing ? Poor Poor Service no wonder they are loosing customers.
