    Deutsche Post's DHL expands U.S. delivery service to take on FedEx, UPS - Reuters

    Deutsche Post AG’s DHL is launching a U.S. urban delivery service for online retailers that it has been testing in some cities, according to company officials and marketing materials seen by Reuters.

    The rollout of its Parcel Metro service will put DHL in direct competition with dominant players United Parcel Service Inc and FedEx Corp. DHL’s contractors will take parcels directly to homes instead of its usual practice of dropping off packages for delivery by the U.S. Postal Service.

    Cowen & Co analyst Helane Becker said she believes Amazon is working with DHL to expand its presence in the United States.
