    Anybody ever use DHL? I have a packing in the mail from them which was mailed early in the week but the tracking has not been updated since. Should I be worried? Any feedback would be helpful.

    I thought this was going to be about the phishing e-mails under the guise of DHL Shipping that have been going around for awhile...

    I had stuff shipped from China with DHL and shipping was super fast (faster than EMS) and tracking accurate and up to date...

    I got somestuff from bejing china off ebay

    DHL laid off thousands when they filed bankruptcy and started only doing international
    no domestic

    In short ,,, DHL is not as updated as it used to be...
    My package took 2 weeks...
    On the website it showed it was mailed from china... a week later check into cali...

    Then no update , it arrived at my house and i checked the website it still had not been updated ... I checked each day it took 2 days after it arrived to show it arrived at my house.

    be patient... It might arive at your house before the DHL system even gets updated

    I use DHL all the time at the office and have never had an issue with things. Granted these are all within Canada... but still, no issues.

    Looks like it hit Cincinnati last night so I guess it should be here sometime next week. Thanks for the impute though, will come in handy next time, now I'm just worried how much of a bite customs is going to take out of this -_-
