User Interface


Digital communication is essential for our business. Websites play a key role in our daily work and represent the brand like no other touchpoint. This guide will help you create modern and memorable websites that deliver the DHL brand experience.

This guide contains
  • Header
  • Content
  • Footer


The DHL website header helps users to navigate through a website. A header usually contains the logo, the main/primary navigation, user profile, page search and language settings. To help users identify the site, it is helpful to include the business unit in the header. The main navigation generally displays a horizontal top-level menu with sub-levels displayed in drop-down lists or mega-menus. Microsites can use a simple header that contains only the DHL logo and language option.


Using our layout system, you can combine the various interface components to create countless templates and layouts – from homepages to rich content pages that incite more action. We have a wide range of ready-to-use components that you can adapt to build your web pages. By using these components, you ensure your website is on-brand and consistent with other DHL websites.


The footer wraps up the page and gives users options to continue their journey. It is bright, simple and avoids dark backgrounds in order to keep viewers focussed on the more important content above. Common footer elements include social links, legal and contact links, the DPDHL Group logo and a copyright. In some countries and regions, some links are required by law (e.g. privacy policy or terms of service). Please check the requirements for your country to ensure your footer complies with local law.
