    UPS makes Philadelphia a major airfreight crossroad - Philly.com

    Freight moves across the globe in a carefully synchronized dance, and Philadelphia waltzes with the whole world.

    Every day, United Parcel Service Inc. flies tens of thousands of packages through Philadelphia, its second largest air hub in the country. Usually, few people take great notice.

    International attention did focus on UPS in October 2010, after authorities located bombs in toner cartridges on two cargo planes from Yemen, including a UPS jet, in a terrorism plot that unfolded from the United Arab Emirates to Germany to Britain - and on to Philadelphia.
