    Default Today is the day

    DHLers;

    What has happened about the announcement today??? As I have retired from DHL, I still have many friends there. I hope all goes for the best, and they keep all of you. Best of luck.

    DHL sharing cargo space on planes with UPS. Could impact many ABX Pilots.

    DHL is closing its big sort center in Wilmington Ohio. UPS supposedly will sort and fly almost all of DHLs freight. The sort center employs about 6000 people.

    Astar and ABX (two separate companies)fly the freight now. I think there will be a lot of pilots out of work also. In a few months I believe some drivers will be laid off. The outlying (sparsely populated) areas will be serviced by the post office. My thoughts are they will be one third of the size they are today, by November.

    I read somewhere in another press release that DHL was partnering with FedEx and the US Postal Service. Also mentioned cutting back on US service to concentrate on their more profitable European service divisions.
