Automated refunds for every late deliveries by DHL


If DHL makes a delivery later than their commitment time, DHL will refund/credit your shipping account with the shipping charges.

However, the catch is that DHL does not make the process of laying claims to these refunds easy. The process is riddled with complexities. Moreover, If you submit any wrong claim, DHL penalizes by adding a fee to the subsequent invoice.

At AuditShipment, our AI-Driven audit service with the help of intelligent algorithms scrutinizes every shipment and automatically files claims for eligible failures to DHL on your behalf. Signing up with us takes less than a minute, and the DHL refunds for eligible service failures will directly get credited to your shipping account.

DHL will, upon the customer’s request and subject to the restrictions described below, provide a credit or a refund of the premium paid by the customer for a DHL Express shipment that is delivered later than DHL’s quoted delivery commitment. DHL’s money-back guarantee (“the Guarantee”) is subject to the following conditions:

A. The Guarantee only applies to the services

  • DHL EXPRESS 9:00,
  • DHL IMPORT EXPRESS 9:00,
  • DHL DOMESTIC EXPRESS 9:00,
  • DHL EXPRESS 10:30,
  • DHL IMPORT EXPRESS 10:30,
  • DHL DOMESTIC EXPRESS 10:30,
  • DHL EXPRESS 12:00,
  • DHL IMPORT EXPRESS 12:00,
  • DHL DOMESTIC EXPRESS 12:00, (each a “Service”) and to shipments which comply fully with the restrictions which are described herein

B. The Guarantee applies to the premium over and above the customer’s price for a standard end of day service (DHL EXPRESS WORLDWIDE, DHL IMPORT EXPRESS WORLDWIDE, or in the case of domestic shipments, DHL DOMESTIC EXPRESS) (the “Premium”). The Guarantee is exclusive of all other items, including, without limitation, fines, taxes or other charges or amounts (such as any fuel surcharge component), and transportation charges resulting from returned shipments.
