Send a package to Cameroon with DHL
We have some DHL services that are reliable and affordable for those who need a shipping service to Douala, Yaounde and beyond. DHL eCommerce is very cheap compared to many other courier services, so much so it is almost $100 cheaper to use than the next cheapest service for a 10lbs package.
DHL eCommerce is a tracked mail service that allows you to send your items economically. You print the shipping labels out and drop your package off at a local USPS Post Office. From here it will be transported to a depot where it is sorted and then sent out of the US to Cameroon. The service is tracked, but only when it is scanned in the sorting depot and upon delivery. This means the shipping costs can be kept low, whilst you are still informed of the whereabouts of your package. DHL is a tracked mail service so transit times are between 11-22 working days.
