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 shipments from different merchants of the same origin into one tracking number. For example, if you are looking to purchase a pair of shoes from Brand X and a polo from Brand Y from the USA, upon your request, DHL Easyshop will combine the two packages and ship them to you under one tracking number so that you receive both packages at the same time.

Note: Consolidation does not involve repacking multiple packages into one box, each package will remain in its original box. Consolidation can only take place if the multiple orders being made are from the same origin.

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.
