[BENGALURU] DHL, a unit of Deutsche Post, said on Wednesday that it expected some inbound and outbound shipments to the Americas to continue to be delayed until Thursday due to a strike by pilots at cargo airline ABX Air.

Some 250 ABX Air pilots, who are represented by the Teamsters union, went on strike early Tuesday, affecting around 75 flights, mostly for Amazon.com Inc and DHL.

A federal court ruling is expected later on Wednesday that will either reject or approve a request by ABX Air for a temporary restraining order against the strike. "We have put in place contingency plans to lessen the impact for customers. We are continuing to monitor the situation," DHL spokeswoman Bea Garcia said in an email to Reuters.
