UPS and DHL have (had, at least) similar arrangements with the USPS.
"Free shipping" packages from often come this way. The only
problem I've had was one package that disappeared in between UPS and
USPS; perhaps something thought the contents were valuable (they
weren't: $11) and took it home; NewEgg shipped another promptly.

Years ago when laptop RAM was several hundred bucks Airborne delivered
the package to my neighbor's woodpile. The kids found it a couple of
days later and brought it over. Hopefully DHL can introduce a little
German efficiency.
