Rethinking Mailbox Access

By Keith Kellison, senior vice president, UPS Global Public Affairs  When we say “neighborhood logistics,” what we really mean is serving everyday people like me and you better than ever before. At UPS, that’s nothing new. Since our start in 1907, we’ve gone through a host of transformations. From the early days of delivering by bike, to the first package cars, to next-day air shipments, UPS has led the way in meeting customers’ demands.  Quickly responding to changes in those demands is paramount.


No Time like the Present

It’s Christmas in July for the retail industry. Holiday decorations might not hit stores for a few more months, but retailers are now working on their 2015 holiday plans. 

And you can bet that shipping strategies are a big part of those plans. Online sales made up about 10 percent of the $616 billion in holiday sales last year, so shipping plans are a top priority for retailers. In addition, more and more retailers are eyeing the international market, which means cross-border shipping is part of the mix as well.
