DHL Express, an international express courier service provider, today announced the average price increase of 6.9 per cent in India with effect from January 1, 2017.

“DHL Express announced its annual general average price increase, effective January 1, 2017. In India, the average price increase will be 6.9 per cent,” the company said in a statement.

“DHL Express is focused on being the quality leader in the international time definite delivery business,” DHL Express CEO Ken Allen was quoted as saying in the statement.

“Our annual price increase supports this aspiration by allowing us to invest in a truly world-class network that generates significant value for our customers. Our prices reflect both the value embedded in our service and our uncompromising long-term commitment to service quality,” Allen said.

“DHL continues to invest in India and its global network to improve delivery speed, efficiency and provide superior service quality to our customers. The annual rate increase will support ongoing expansions, quality enhancements while helping to neutralise the impact of inflation and the depreciating rupee,” DHL Express India SVP and Country Manager RS Subramanian said.

DHL Express adjusts its prices annually, taking into account inflation, currency dynamics and other rising costs, such as expenses related to compliance with enhanced security regulations, in each of the more than 220 countries and territories that it serves.

Price adjustments will vary from country to country, depending on local conditions, and will apply to all customers where contracts allow.
