I've had a thing against DHL for awhile now.I priced shipping on a 2 pound package to my wife a few years ago.IIRC ups was like $65,fedex was about $75 and DHL wanted about $135.All for the nearly exact same shipping time to get there.I think part of this is going to some places they just are not competitive in pricing.Then over there I priced the same type package back to here.Fedex was cheapest the other 2 not much more then fedex...it made no sense at all.Its pretty tough to compete against fedex and ups and perhaps theres 1 too many shippers in the biz.
Both fedex and ups 3 day service to my wife can take 4 to 6 days,agreed its to a bit of a remote place.Compare that tho to regular postal airmail which is about 2 to 4 weeks and thats if it doesn't get stolen at the post office there.
