This usually happens when DHL Express has insufficient information to track the shipment on your behalf. The address may be incorrect or some additional information may be needed. The issue can be resolved very quickly by contacting directly the company.
Tracking results show that my shipment will move to a different city from its original destination. Why?
The delivery and delivery destinations shown in the DHL Express tracking results are based on the destination of the service station that provides the delivery . Please be assured that your shipment is delivered to the destination that you provided.
