The DHL Company, for Dalsey, Hillblom and Lynn International, is also specialised in the transport of packets and parcels and is based in the United States. It is owned by Deutsche Post, the German postal group. The Deutsche Post DHL Group is actually the largest logistics company worldwide and operates in over 220 different countries and territories.

The major partners of UPS

After studying the major adversaries of UPS, we shall now look at some examples of this company’s allies by examining some recent partnerships that this American group has implemented with other companies:


The first partnership we shall examine here was created in 2020 with the Wingcopter Company which is a German start-up. The two groups signed this partnership agreement with the objective of obtaining the certification necessary for German manufactured devices that would enable the use of a new generation of delivery drones, quieter and with increased usability options. Through this partnership the company’s subsidiary, UPS Flight Forward, or UPSFF, would be responsible for the administrative steps necessary to obtain authorisation for these future drones to be certified for use in different delivery tasks on American territory. It should be noted that UPSFF has already obtained the authorisation necessary to use delivery drones in aerial corridors.

Free (Iliad)

Another partnership, older this time, was signed in 2010 with the group Free. In fact, UPS was the chosen transporter for the delivery of Freeboxes to the subscribers of Free.
