    My guess is that DHL will announce that they are ceasing domestic operations after Thanksgiving and will offer all employees a severance package to keep working until the last delivery is made. With Christmas just around the corner anything less would be immoral. The Christmas rush starts after Thanksgiving and I'm guessing DHL won't be able to handle the increase in freight because they have already parked several aircraft in Wilmington and laid off several hundred (perhaps more) workers at the hub in Ohio.

    DHL will use the USPS to deliver International coming into the US and UPS for the pick up of International. DHL will only be a website in the coming weeks. I certainly don't see DHL operating in the current business model after Dec. 31.

    The slow pace of progress on the UPS airlift deal is probably what will force DHL to end domestic operations sooner than expected. Is it a conspiracy between DHL and UPS? Who knows? Airborne Express would have went belly up long ago if the Germans had not took the gamble. The Germans got their *** handed to them by UPS and FedEx. A costly war in Iraq and a recessionary economy didn't help the situation either.

    This will be my final post at TeamstersOnline regarding DHL. I'm just going to get up each morning and go to work until I am told not to come back. Hopefully, with a decent severance check I can make the transition to another job and put DHL/Airborne Express behind me.

    Good luck to all.

    I had a customer tell me last week that they will not stop using DHL for international shipments. No one else can come close to what DHL does internationally. He has a close friend that is a VP at UPS and he asked him what they could do to get him to start using UPS for their international and this guy replied, " NOTHING". He told him they couldn't compete with DHL international. I'm sure there is alot of other companies that feel the same way, we just have to find them again like we used to. DHL lost sight of that business when they bought Airborne and kept boosting the ground and second day. BIG MISTAKE on their part because they didn't have the foresight for the business.
    If DHL hadn't been bought by a foreign company and been employee owned, it might be in a better position today. But we'll never know!
    I think everyone needs to stop with the negativity and do their job and fight to the bitter end and help each other. Just remember, the supervisors you have right now will be called if you submit an application elsewhere!
