Robust tool now provides access to international tracking, reporting and
WESTON, Fla., Feb. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Already a robust reporting tool for
domestic mail programs, DHL Global Mail's Customer Web Portal is expanding to
help businesses better manage their international mailings. Customers have
long accessed the portal for information about their domestic shipments,
including tracking data, invoices and custom performance reports. Now the
portal's functionality has been extended to make these same capabilities
available for international mail programs as well.

This groundbreaking expansion is yet another example of how DHL Global
Mail provides unmatched solutions for high-volume mailers, as the Customer Web
Portal now offers more information than any tool of its kind in the expedited
mail industry. This distinction underscores the fact that all cross-border
mail providers are not equal.
"DHL Global Mail is proud to be the only mail expediter that offers
businesses this level of information on their international mailings with just
the click of a mouse," said Dave Kelly, Vice President of Information
Technology for DHL Global Mail - Americas. "Our Customer Web Portal has proven
to be an invaluable management tool for our customers, and we will continue to
build on its impressive capabilities."
Traditionally, businesses sending cross-border mail have had to settle
for much less shipment visibility than domestic mailers enjoy. The expansion
of DHL Global Mail's Customer Web Portal closes that transparency gap
considerably, with tracking of key events in the supply chain for
international business mail, parcels and publications. For parcel shipments,
customers can use the portal to access DHL Global Mail's Track Asia, Track
Latin America and Track Canada services.
The portal also enables customers to generate reports on shipment volumes
and weights, sorted by each different DHL Global Mail product used and
viewable in a variety of ways. Depending on their data needs, customers can
have shipment information presented for a single day or week, or sorted by
factors such as Bill of Lading (BOL) number, destination, zone and -- for
publications -- title.
Besides providing custom reports on both domestic and international mail
programs, the portal allows customers to view itemized invoices--current or
historic, up to 90 days--and detailed BOL information. Customers can even use
the tool to schedule pick ups and order supplies. With all these capabilities,
the newly expanded portal will help customers better manage their
international shipping programs and contribute to the growing cross-border
mail market. Additionally, the portal offers another kind of convenience: It
makes selecting a cross-border mailing partner easier, since only DHL Global
Mail has such a robust tool.
