DHL shipping cost per kg

DHL Express China shipping costs depend on a lot of factors like your shipping destination, shipping time, weight and size of your package, extra requirements, etc. You can find the country and zone-wise charges for DHL direct Express shipping from the Rates Guide page of DHL Express shipping. You will have to calculate your chargeable shipping weight, to know the exact price from the chart. The fuel surcharge percentage changes every month.

How to Calculate the DHL Chargeable Weight?

The chargeable weight for DHL Express from China is the larger value between the gross weight of the product and the volume or dimensional weight. The gross weight is the actual weight of the product. You can calculate the volume weight using the formula:

Volume/Dimensional Weight (in kg) =Length*Height*Width(in cm)/5000

In the case of irregular packages, the longest length, breadth, and height are measured as if the package is a regular solid figure. Also, if the length, breadth, and height have been measured in inches, you will have to additionally multiply 167 in the denominator. This means the shipper always has to pay the larger shipping fee, and this convention has been internationally implemented to take into account the differences in the shipping of heavy cargo and light cargo.

Thus, the final fee for DHL Express shipping from China, barring any extra charges, will depend on the published rate for that chargeable weight, hiked by the fuel surcharge.

The current fuel surcharge percentage is available on the DHL website. However, for finding a more detailed discourse on finding chargeable weight, simply check out our page that explains “How to Calculate Chargeable Weight for Air & Sea Freight Shipments?

Moreover, due to our commercial association with DHL, we get more discounted rates, even though the DHL shipping time from China changes slightly. With us, you will be able to save up to 70% on the shipping charges. In case you are looking for a more accurate calculation, you can ask for a quote for the exact amount you will have to pay.
