    UPS sees 2010 volume growth, higher rates - Reuters

    United Parcel Service Inc (UPS.N), the world's largest package delivery service, expects growth in its volumes next year as the global economy gradually recovers, its chief said on Wednesday.

    UPS CEO Scott Davis told Reuters the company will hike shipping rates for 2010, which follows a similar move by rival Fedex (FDX.N), and it will announce the size of the hike later this month.

    "I think we will go back to see positive volumes next year as the economy improves," Scott said in an interview, ahead of a meeting of Asia-Pacific corporate and political leaders in Singapore.
