Recently (2014-2015) the South African postal service has deteriorated considerably. There is now a desperate need for an alternative service for international mail and parcel deliveries.

Even though the postal service is still functional, there is a constant threat of a "Go Slow" or a "Strike". No business can use a partner like this while trying to provide a satisfactory service to its clients.

DHL Global Mail provides a postal service for international mail and small parcels at prices comparable to the postal service.

DHL Global Mail Security Check

All parcels must have a security check ""Passed" sticker and a green CN22 sticker.

The green CN22 sticker is the same as is used by the postal service. With the postal service plants have often been labelled as "Gift" and documentation like a phytosanitary certificate for plants sometimes omitted.

It appears that the checking of DHL Global Mail parcels is more strict and they require a more detailed description of content. It is probably advisable to have a phytosanitary certificate for plants included in the parcel.

Negotiations with PostNet in this regard is continuing.
