DHL has expanded its Import Express Online service to cover 95 countries, including the top 30 U.S. trade lanes. Import Express Online is a Web-based tool which gives importers control over their import or third-party (country-to-country) shipments. Users can obtain full visibility during the shipment process, with the ability to specify all shipment instructions, including terms of sale, pickup schedule, service level, and desired amount of insurance. All waybill numbers for tracking are accessible during the entire shipment process, with automatic shipment-status notifications sent via e-mail throughout the shipment lifecycle. Countries added to Import Express Online since its launch in the fall of 2006 include Austria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Canada, Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Finland, Italy, Kenya, Latvia, Morocco, Norway, Poland, South Africa, Spain, Sri Lanka and the United Kingdom. Next-day service is available through Import Express from select cities in Europe, as well as major cities in Mexico and Canada. Depending on the final destination, one- or two-day service to the U.S. is available from Hong Kong and major cities in China, South Korea and Taiwan.
