If you’ve bought an item from an online merchant, either eBay, Amazon, Newegg, or any others, and you chose DHL for shipping, either locally or internationally, you can expect to see so many terminologies, that things could start to get confusing for the average user. The departure origin DHL eCommerce facility is another one of those shipping statuses that the company has done a good job of using to confuse us.
What does the departure origin DHL eCommerce facility shipping status mean? What are you expected to do? These and more will be discussed in this article.
What does departure origin DHL eCommerce facility mean?
The departure origin DHL eCommerce facility status means that your parcel has been shipped out of the local DHL eCommerce facility and is either making its way out of the country on its way to you or is making its way across the country on its way to you.
When DHL eCommerce picks your parcel from the merchant in question, the DHL facility where it is scanned into the system is called the Origin DHL eCommerce facility, and as soon as it leaves, it means that it is moving away to another facility, and in some cases to another country.
What should you do? The departure origin DHL eCommerce facility is a sign that your parcel is moving towards you and you really do not have to do anything as it means that there aren’t any issues and your parcel is moving closer to you. The only time when you might need to either speak to the merchant or DHL is if you think the parcel has had this status for too long, which might mean something is wrong somewhere.
For most customers, the status changes after a day or two, and in many cases, even hours, so just keep tabs on it to see if there are any issues along the way.

How long does DHL eCommerce take to deliver?
Typically, you should expect DHL eCommerce to deliver a parcel in as little as 4 days and in the worst case, 3 weeks. Most of the parcels we have received through DHL from the United States to Africa have arrived in 5 days or less, and that is not inclusive of the time it takes to process it.
How long does it take for DHL to transfer to USPS?
If DHL can’t deliver to you because they don’t have coverage in your area, you can expect them to leave the last 1 percent of the delivery mile to USPS if you’re in the United States and to other local delivery options depending on where you live. On most of these transfers of parcel, you can expect a standard delivery of between 1 to 7 business days. Many customers have reported that they are unable to track their shipments after this transfer, so you should have that as a consideration if you don’t receive it as expected.
