What are the benefits of consolidating packages?

DHL EasyShop is committed to help you in your international purchases. For this reason, we offer you a consolidation service.

Consolidation is the process of combining multiple orders, possibly from different countries onto one tracking number so all your packages will be delivered together but in their original packages. Let’s say you buy the latest smartphone from UK and a pair of T-shirts from Lacoste in the USA. DHL EasyShop will put the original boxes together to be treated as a single shipment, so you will receive the 2 packages at the same time.

Note: Consolidation does not involve repacking multiple packages into one box

What are the benefits of consolidation?

When packages are shipped separately, each package will bear the burden of a minimum charge for the first half kilo.

In the example below, 5 packages are shipped separately to the same address. Each one weighs 1 kg.

  • Package 1 = $18.25 1kg
  • Package 2 = $18.25 1kg
  • Package 3 = $18.25 1kg
  • Package 4 = $18.25 1kg
  • Package 5 = $18.25 1kg

Total Cost $91.25 5kgs

As an alternative, when shipments are consolidated, multiple packages are shipped together on the same airway bill to the same address.

The shipment minimum (which is the 1st half kilo) is satisfied with the first package, eliminating the minimum charge for each.

When the same 5 packages are shipped through consolidation, you will save a significant amount in the shipping cost…

  • Package 1 = $18.25 1kg
  • Package 2 = $4.35 1kg
  • Package 3 = $4.35 1kg
  • Package 4 = $4.35 1kg
  • Package 5 = $4.35 1kg

Total Cost $35.65 5kgs

Shipped Separately $91.25

Consolidated $35.65

Savings $55.60

Please note that if you selected Shipment Insurance on any individual package that you select to be consolidated only the specific package(s) will be covered by the insurance.
