    UNITED PARCEL SERVICE INC Files SEC form 10-Q, Quarterly Report - Yahoo

    The U.S. economic expansion has continued at a slow pace through the third quarter of 2013. Continued growth in retail sales (particularly among e-commerce retailers) has provided for expansion in the overall U.S. small package delivery market; however, slowing export growth and industrial production, and a lack of significant inventory replenishment, have negatively impacted the growth in commercial shipments. Given these trends, our products most aligned with business-to-consumer shipments have experienced the strongest growth, while growth in our business-to-business volume has remained sluggish.
