What does it mean when DHL says “tendered to delivery service provider”?

It means that some other truck than DHL will deliver your parcel.

I got a similar yesterday notice from UPS when I checked the tracking in the morning, and the package was delivered by USPS and placed in my mailbox.

It’s likely that DHL has limited resources in your area and contracts with local delivery services when they need to.

There are a couple of guys with a small fleet of trucks in my neighborhood and they’re always ready to go pick up stuff and deliver it. I’m sure if they met a DHL shipment at the airport, the tracking data for those parcels would show they were tendered to a delivery service provider.
