In 2001, DaimlerChrysler launched a cooperation with the Hamburg delivery company Hermes Versand Service to test the fuel cell Mercedes-Benz Sprinter in everyday commercial operation.
The German association of private parcel undertakings, BIEK, believes that, had it not been for the misuse of state aid, Deutsche Post would not have been able to survive in the commercial parcels sector.Parcel services in Germany are open to extensive competition, and since the 1970s an increasing number of private firms have entered the market - for example, Deutscher Paket Dienst, German Parcel, and Hermes Versand Service. The 1990s saw the emergence of an even faster and more competitive market, in which Deutsche Post, one of the "old school" players, found it was not able to keep up.The investigation into Deutsche Post follows a complaint in 1994 by United Parcel Service (UPS), a private operator specialising in door-to-door parcel services for business customers.
