China is THE great economic success story of the past 30 years and has become one of the world's leading industrial and commercial nations. This is one reason why there has been a vast increase in demand for a reliable, trustworthy, efficient and professional courier service between the UK and China. DHL ticks all these boxes.

Located in more than 220 countries and territories worldwide, we are the leading choice for both UK and international deliveries. Sending a parcel to China, whether it’s Beijing or Hong Kong, is simple with us. You can book a delivery without having an account and track your parcel for free by text, phone or online. Not only that, we also provide door-to-door delivery and ensure your parcel is signed for when it’s delivered to its destination.

What's more, the DHL service for packages to China has built-in flexibility. You may not want immediate collection, for example. You may prefer the assurance of knowing that DHL will collect your package on a certain day. If that's the case, simply arrange for collection of your package to China up to five days in advance when you book online.

Start the process of sending your parcel to China by our "get a quote tool" and choosing between our three options, DHLitNow, DHL by phone or DHL Service Point.

Remember to check our "what you can and what you can't send"
