Shipping HAZMAT with DHL eCommerce

DHL eCommerce requires that hazardous material notifications are printed on the shipping label when shipping items deemed hazardous by DHL. This includes lithium batteries, perfume, lighters, etc.

  1. Hazmat service must be enabled on your ELS account with DHL’s approval. Contact your ELS and DHL representatives.
  2. On ShipBridge’s order grid, check the column “Is HazMat” and choose a HazMat description. For products other than lithium batteries, select the description “ORD_M.” You can set a default HazMat description on the USPS tab in ShipBridge.
