    UPS Resumes Service in Japan’s Iwate Prefecture After Quake - Bloomberg
    United Parcel Service Inc. (UPS), the world’s biggest package-delivery company, is resuming the remainder of services halted in Japan’s Iwate prefecture after the March earthquake and tsunami.

    Pickups and deliveries in the affected areas will restart today, said Susan Rosenberg, a spokeswoman. Fukushima is the only region where some UPS services remain suspended, she said.

    UPS has 1,000 employees in Japan and 34 weekly flights to and from the country, with 10 pickup and delivery centers plus other centers for operations, logistics and brokerage services, the company said in March.
