Understand Your AWB & Invoice
The air waybill or AWB contains all information necessary for the transportation of your shipment. It is generated at the end of your shipment creation on MyDHL+. Your shipment will be identified by a unique 10-digit code known as your AWB number that acts as the reference for your shipment. Inserting complete and accurate details during shipment creation helps to ensure that your AWB reflects and tally with your actual shipment.
The shipping invoice is used as a supporting document for what you declare on your AWB. You can create an invoice as you create your shipment on MyDHL+. It is only required for parcel shipments (not document shipments). Your invoice is used to clear customs, so it must be accurate and corresponds with the contents of your shipment and your AWB.

3. Paying Your Customs Duties in Advance
DHL Express offers excellent opportunities for customer code owners, to pay Duties and Taxes in Advance.
- DTP (Duties Taxep Paid) is a service that allows the sender of a shipment to pay all customs duties and other import-related costs before the shipment reaches its destination.
- Landed Cost is a feature of the MyDHL API, designed for e-commerce businesses. Landed Cost allows webshop customers to prepay customs duties along with the product so that they don't have to do it upon the arrival of the shipment in the destination country. This feature significantly contributes to the acceleration of the shipment delivery.
Service can be selected in the MyDHL+ (business account holders only)
Service can be integrated to your webshop through our MyDHL API (business account holders only)
