Although originally founded in 1969 to deliver packages between San Francisco and Honolulu, DHL now employees 275,000 people to deliver packages around the world. Therefore, if you need a package shipped, DHL isn’t a bad bet. Furthermore, you can track a package once shipped as well.

If you’re in need of such a service, continue reading the below for instructions. As long as you have the tracking number or reference number, you can track a package you shipped or one being shipped to you.

Required to track a DHL package:

• A Computer or Laptop or Mobile Phone or tablet with access to the internet
• Have a DHL package shipped.
• Have the tracking or reference number of that package (hint: this should be ten or eleven digits long and found on your waybill; it will probably be a combination of both numbers and letters).
Steps to track a DHL package:
1. Go to
2. Find your tracking number or reference number located on your receipt or waybill.
3. Below the heading “Track DHL Express Shipments”, you’ll see a grey box with “Track Now” written in the top left hand corner.
4. First, select your Shipment Type in the box.
5. Enter the number from your receipt or waybill that was identified as your tracking number.
6. Then click the little red rectangle that reads “Track.”
7. If, for whatever reason, you wish to speak to a DHL associate personally about the location or tracking of your shipment, click the “contact DHL Express Customer Service” link below the grey rectangle where you entered your tracking information.

This information should provide you with the exact location of your package and where it stands in the delivery protocol. If anything about the tracking seems erroneous, reach out to customer support.
