As a shipcloud customer, you can easily generate DHL returns labels for shipments within Germany and enclose them in your parcels. Billing for these labels is based on usage.

Surcharges or additional fees

DHL reserves the right to subsequently charge additional fees, e.g. for address correction, manual sorting or island or out-of-area surcharges. The surcharge may also be applied if the actual parcel dimensions or weight do not correspond with those specified.

shipcloud reserves the right to pass on these surcharges to you. Further information and an overview of possible surcharges can be found here.
