    I had no clue. Sent a few items via DHL first of the month. Got harassing email from customers calling me every name in the book....from scammer to Christmas ruiner...

    Come to find out DHL's not doing their job....or stealing packages...god knows what.

    You'd think there would be something on their website about them shutting down....there isn't though.

    Holy crap.....thanks for the heads up on this. I just sent a package out this morning. Never had a problem before, but if the employees know their days are numbered anyway, this is not good.

    Yeah this is fairly old news.. They are only going to keep express mail coming into the states, and overseas service only. Ground service in the us has been terminated. Anybody ever use dhl?? I personally never have.

    I have used DHL and can well understand why they are terminating ground service.

    DHL could not carry a package to the house next door!

    DHL sucks. They are always late delivering packages and I have had products damaged 2 times. I have never had a good experience with these guys.

    DHL really does suck. I once had a package from a vendor that was supposed to be delivered to my office on East 24th street in Manhattan. The delivery guy called me from 23rd Street asking for directions.

    DHL seems to only work for documents overnighted on the cheap. Used it in multiple companies but only for documents and even then if it wasn't B2B the delivery was messed up 10% of the time.
