    UPS boss embraces technology — but with a different vision than Amazon - Boston Business Journal

    David Abney started working for the United Parcel Service as a teenager in 1974. Now, as CEO of the $90 billion, Atlanta-based company, he knows that in order to compete in the package delivery market, UPS has to be a technology company.

    "One thing we all have in common is that there's probably someone somewhere out there thinking of ways that they can replace many of our businesses right now, and we either embrace change, embrace technology and the trends we face, or someone's going to do it for us," Abney told business executives at an event in Boston on Thursday, hosted by Boston College's CEO Club.
