In my experience, a bunch of unprofessional halfwits who are completely incompetent.

In the last six weeks we have received six shipments. Only one out of the six shipments went without a snag. The other five have been complete disasters and very expensive to remedy.

Does anyone have a good word to say about them?

I have DHL ship from Asia to my EPS address in Miami. The problem is the DR distribution, not getting it to the DR. EPS, IMO, is much more efficient.

When I receive deliveries by DHL it often takes one or two days more than should. Sending out goes well, delivery overnight, only I have to bring the envelops to their office while it seems impossible for them to being me new envelops and forms, and they can't hand them out in their office.

I prefer FEDEX.

When I lived in the US, I had suppliers that would not use DHL, because they called them too rough on the packages and somewhat unreliable. I use either Fedex for really fast requirements and EncargoPaq for the rest.

Received many packages by UPS, Fedex and DHL, US to DR and Europe to DR. Only company which I never had a problem with was DHL, worst was UPS, one shipment took six weeks to get sorted out, problems always occurred in the DR.

you are going to have problems with all of them. People have been posting about shipping companies for years . I owned an online auto parts store for like 10 years and shipped everywhere in the world. A few excpetions. its great , its bad etc. if you do not like fedex for example, if you ship here by the USPS it actually is shipped by fedex. What you think you get is not always what it is. They all miss deliver, they all lose orders, they all deliver on time, they all cost hahahaha.

ever ship to an indian reservation in USA??? not hard but it can be interesting.
its just like saying who makes the best hamburger

i have had good service from DHL but no better then fedex ups. etc. Remember REO express hahahahaah is used them to
