Shipment::DHL simply hasn't been written yet. If you would like to
contribute, let me know, or simply fork it on github!

I don't have a lot of experience with EDI/EDIFACT integration, so I can't
speak to that. I have worked with X12 documents which is actually not as
difficult as I thought it would be, but with EDI, the difficult part is
often in the communication protocol, not the file format.

Both USPS and Canada Post use XML over either REST or SOAP which would be
fairly straightforward to add a new Shipment module for. I hope to be
working on these ones this fall!
