DHL Says Goodbye to US

Today DHL announced that they would be shutting down their air and ground package service in the United States, effective January 30, 2009. You can get the presentation here. This is bad news for parcel shippers. We have already seen a price increase announcement from UPS and FedEx is sure to follow. As the DHL commercial from a few years ago said, “Competition: bad for them, good for you.”
