    UPS, Merck Enter US Distribution Pact For Drugs, Vaccines - Smart Money

    United Parcel Service Inc. (UPS) said Tuesday it has entered a pact to manage most of Merck & Co.'s (MRK) U.S. distribution of pharmaceuticals and vaccines and to provide package transportation services for the company.

    Through its unit UPS Supply Chain Solutions, UPS has taken control of two Merck distribution centers, which provide the drug maker with temperature-controlled storage, packaging and transportation services. Most of Merck's U.S. vaccines and pharmaceuticals go through the two centers, located in Atlanta and Reno, Nev.
