shipments between pickup and delivery, as well as the company's relationships
with transportation partners in its vast delivery network. Reaching more than
220 countries and territories, DHL Global Mail operates one of the world's
largest networks for national and international mail services.
The new TMS will provide DHL Global Mail with unprecedented shipment
visibility within its network, which will benefit customers through improved
tracking capabilities. The system will also enhance DHL Global Mail's ability
to identify opportunities for cost and operational efficiencies. This
advantage will help keep down mailing costs for DHL Global Mail customers, who
are already saving on postage by partnering with the mail expediter.

our continuous search for process improvements," said Frank Bettgenhaeuser,
Senior Vice President of Operations for DHL Global Mail - Americas. "We work
tirelessly toward quality enhancements like this to continue offering our
customers the best possible service and value."

of the new TMS will encompass customer pickups and USPS deliveries. The third
and final phase will extend the functionality of this powerful software to
