    Senators seek antitrust probe of UPS/DHL plan - Reuters

    Lawmakers overseeing antitrust matters in the U.S. Senate urged the Bush administration on Monday to investigate a proposal for UPS Inc to fly packages in North America for Deutsche Post express unit DHL.

    "We believe that this proposed agreement raises important antitrust and competition issues that should be examined carefully by the Department of Justice or the Federal Trade Commission," Sens Herb Kohl and Orrin Hatch said in a letter to top officials at each agency.
