DHL Restarting Limited Domestic US Deliveries

Fri Mar 23, 2018 11:34 pm

It looks like DHL is going to try limited domestic US deliveries again. Trials are already going on in Chicago, Los Angeles, and New York. Dallas, Atlanta, San Francisco, and Washington, D.C start in 2018 with more cities TBA for 2019.

DHL is seeing immense growth at CVG right now with plans to hire 1200 additional workers this year. They have been rapidly adding more flights to their schedule and upgrading ramp facilities to handle more cargo.

Given the Amazon/DHL relationship at CVG, it would not surprise me if this pushes their ops closer together. It seems like DHL could fill the last-mile delivery issues that Amazon will certainly need to overcome as Amazon Air grows.

I'm not sure where air fits in here. I buy a toner cartridge from Staples, which has a warehouse on the other side of town. Instead of USPS handling it (next day), DHL handles it. Actually, a contractor does the driving, which is how Amazon Local works now.

DHL Parcel Metro won't be intercity service.

DHL would take it from the local Amazon warehouse or sort center, no?

Sure, substitute Amazon for my Staples example. Now if Amazon wants to move my piece from a out-of-area distribution center to one nearby, that's up to Amazon. DHL Parcel Metro would only get involved once it reaches the nearby distribution center (like OnTrac).

F DHL. I purchased a Bosch glue pen from AmazonDE, shipped from Spain I think. They got to within range of my house and then inexplicably sent it back to Europe without notice. I still haven't been able to get a refund.

Was it fulfilled by Amazon or was it a marketplace vendor?
