The average rate will increase by 4.9%
DHL Express announced it will increase its prices in Hong Kong and Macau, the annual rate adjustment to take effect on January 1, 2022.
Compared to 2021, the average increase will be 4.9%.
DHL adjusts prices annually, taking into consideration inflation and currency dynamics as well as administrative costs related to regulatory and security measures, which are being regularly updated by national and international authorities in each of the more than 220 countries and territories that it serves.
Depending on local conditions, price adjustments will vary from country to country, and will apply to all customers where contracts allow, the international express service provider said in a release.
It said the adjustment also allows the company to further invest in its infrastructure network, strengthen the resilience against crises, and provide the needed capacity growth due to rising customer demands.
The investment includes state-of-the art aircraft and vehicles as well as the expansion of its hubs and gateways to increase capacity as demand for the fastest possible cross-border shipping continues to grow.
The company said it will also increase its use of sustainable aviation fuels, ensure all our new buildings are climate-neutral, offer a comprehensive portfolio of green products and electrify its last-mile delivery fleet to make positive contributions to the environment.
