Application for non-account customers for sending parcels

We created a web application DHLItNow for DHL UK which allows non-account customers to send domestic and international parcels.  It supports users with the whole process: from the pricing of shipping, printing necessary documents such as waybills, customs clearance, and invoices to ordering a courier. The customer can also pay online for shipments.

Functions and integrations

  • The availability of shipment products and additional services like shipping insurance and pricing
  • Managing number ranges for waybills
  • Generating labels for shipments
  • Placing orders for couriers
  • Shipment status notifications
  • Electronic proof of delivery
  • In addition the application is integrated with external service providers like:
  • Payment gateways (WorldPay and PayPal)
  • Address verification and autocomplete services for the UK

The multi-tiered architecture of DHLitNow helps us to separate presentation logic from business domain logic. The middleware layer is designed to process a lot of time consuming requests to internal DHL services to ensure a high performance and a satisfying  user experience. We also provide hosting and support services for the created solution.
