UPS says it is working with customers earlier this year on peak season planning – Louisville Business First

United Parcel Service Inc. says it’s already working closely with retail customers on planning for this year’s peak season — even though there are indications of a softer shipping season this year.

During a conference call on Tuesday, an analyst gave UPS credit for making a concerted effort to build up the capacity of its system. But he asked how the company plans to balance the system’s upgraded capacity with a softer economy and mixed retail market.

Myron A. Gray, president of U.S. operations for the Atlanta-based package shipper, handled the question by saying the company already is working with customers on planning.

Driver thankful that deputy rammed his UPS truck – Local 12

A sheriff’s deputy is being called a hero for ramming his car into an out-of-control UPS truck as the driver suffered a stroke behind the wheel.

“I can’t thank enough for being in the right place at the right time,” Deputy Colin Bertrand said. “It could have been disastrous.”

Bertrand remembers Whatcom County’s roads were quiet on his patrol June 30, so he went poaching around Bellingham’s waterfront for activity. That’s when he spotted a runaway UPS truck swerving and weaving over center lines into oncoming traffic, hitting curbs, ignoring his sirens and lights.
