DHL’s Paperless Trade* system is a free service that will help you save valuable time, as well as money on paper and printing costs, whilst also making a positive contribution to the environment.

Why Paperless Trade?

  • Save time – you no longer have to physically attach your commercial and pro-forma invoices to shipments
  • Save money – reduce your print and paper costs with less printing
  • Experience fewer delays – earlier receipt of documentation allows queries to be resolved more quickly
  • Be more environmentally friendly – reduces use of paper and printing consumables
  • Get customised documentation – upload a digital signature and company logo to print on your invoices.

You only have to register once for Paperless Trade, after which it will be automatically offered to available countries, as you prepare your shipments.


*DHL Paperless Trade is available for customers using DHL IntraShip, DHL XML Services and DHL EDI Solutions.
