Deutsche Post will close all of its DHL Express service centers, cut 9,500 jobs in the United States and DHL - DHL Airbus A300B4-200 (OO-DLZ) takes off from London Luton Airport, Bedfordshire, England eliminate US – only domestic shipping by land and air, with the company citing heavy losses amid fierce competition.

The Bonn-based company noted that the cuts are on top of 5,400 job losses it already announced. It blamed heavy losses at DHL, which competes against UPS and FedEx.

The cuts are part of a wider plan to curtail operations in the United States, including domestic ground and delivery services. Part of the plan calls for the halt to domestic shipping by January 30, but international shipping is not affected.

The DHL Express unit currently employs some 18,000 workers.
