House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure Hearing on the Effects of Proposed Arrangement Between DHL and UPS on Competition, Customer Service, and Employment

Posted by D. Daniel Sokol

For those who want to see local parochialism in action on competition matters, check out the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure Hearing on the Effects of Proposed Arrangement Between DHL and UPS on Competition, Customer Service, and Employment.  The written testimony is available on the web.  This is not a 3 to 2 merger as opponents portray it.  Indeed, it is not a merger at all, but that is a different story.  Have people forgotten that the US Postal Service also competes in this market as well (and does so in ways that distorts competition according to a recent FTC study)?
