    UPS Lures DHL Shippers Before Alliance, Astar Says - Bloomberg

    United Parcel Service Inc. is using its planned collaboration with Deutsche Post AG's DHL unit to snatch customers from DHL, Astar Air Cargo Inc. alleged today.

    Astar, a DHL vendor and shipping customer, made the assertion to a U.S. House panel in written testimony by Chief Operating Officer Gary Hammes, citing a comment by a UPS salesperson that DHL service would become "substandard'' under the new alliance.
