    United Parcel Service: Driving down Memory Lane - Market Realist

    United Parcel Service (UPS) traces its origins to a humble beginning by two teenagers in 1907. Claude Ryan and Jim Casey started the American Messenger Company with a $100 loan and a Seattle basement. They carried notes and made home deliveries on foot and by bicycle, beginning their specialized business of parcel and message delivery. Today’s UPS relies on the pair’s core values of neatness, reliability, courtesy, and ethical practices.
