DHL did come to the states. They were thwarted by protectionist law. Had they been allowed to properly buy those airlines and thereby optomise them with the RIGHT equipment to be efficient and competitve they may have stood some chance of at least turning a decent profit.

Although to be fair, the fact that to FEDEX something is in the national psyche, it was always going to be a challenging market.
