DHL Domestic to Loomis Express

People often wonder if DHL and Loomis or Canpar the same company since Loomis trucks often deliver DHL packages. DHL bought Loomis Express in 2001 to offer a domestic solution and as a result became the third domestic parcel company in the country. It lasted till 2011 due to sale to Transforce.

DHL made this decision because DHL USA  exited domestic operations in 2008 consequently to focus only on International Shipping & Importing. In addition, Transforce and DHL entered into a 10-year-old strategic relationship as well to offer some services to DHL Customers.
