How to pick up a parcel

1. Select a locker

In the webshop, choose a DHL Locker near you as the delivery option. Is that option not listed? Then you can easily arrange it after checkout using track and trace or the My DHL app.

2. Wait for our notification

We will let you know when your parcel is ready via track and trace or the My DHL app.

3. Use your code to open the locker

The code we send is unique to you, which means you are the only one who can access the locker containing your parcel. Be sure to pick up the parcel within seven days - otherwise it will be returned.

How do I send my parcel using a DHL Locker?

You can also use a DHL Locker to ship or return parcels. Make sure there is a shipping or return label on the parcel. If you don't have a label, you can create and print one via the My DHL Portal. Go to a DHL ServicePoint if you want to ship your parcel without a label or only with a digital label (QR code).

3. Put the parcel in the locker

Sending multiple parcels or packages? Then put them all in their own locker.

My DHL Locker is full. What can I do?

Our DHL Lockers are emptied twice a day from Monday to Saturday. However, it is possible that a locker is full. 

Receiving a parcel
Should your parcel be delivered in a DHL Locker which turns out to be full, we will move to an alternative DHL point nearby. We will inform you about this by e-mail or with a nofication in the My DHL app. You will also find this new location on track and trace.

I don't have a code to collect my shipment from a DHL locker

If you don't have the code to collect your parcel from a DHL locker, please go through the following step-by-step plan.

1. Check your spam
Check your email junk folder. The email with the collection code sometimes ends up in your spam.

2. Double check the location
Check whether your package has really been delivered to the locker. It is possible that our courier has moved to another (manned) DHL ServicePoint. For example, because the locker had a malfunction, or because there was no compartment available to fit your shipment. Therefore, please take a good look at track and trace to see at which collection point your parcel is located. For a manned DHL ServicePoint you do not need a pick-up code.

3. Contact customer service
Was your shipment delivered to a locker and was the code not in your spam? Then please chat with our customer service. Make sure you have the shipment number at hand. Our customer service will make sure you receive a pick-up code as soon as possible.

I shipped a parcel using a DHL Locker, but I did not receive a receipt. What can I do?

I've closed the locker and my parcel is still inside. What should I do?

If you're quick, you'll be able to open the locker again with the same code. If not, call our contact center to re-activate your code.
