    UPS Cooperating With Antitrust Probe on Consultants - Bloomberg

    The United Parcel Service Inc. said it’s cooperating with the U.S. Justice Department in an antitrust investigation of its policies on the use of shipping consultants.

    “We are going to cooperate fully with their inquiry,” UPS spokeswoman Susan Rosenberg said about the Justice Department investigation in a telephone interview today. Department spokeswoman Gina Talamona declined to comment on the inquiry.

    The probe was disclosed in a lawsuit filed by Portland, Oregon-based AFMS LLC, a privately held shipping consultant, that alleges that UPS and Federal Express Corp. conspired to exclude third-party shipping consultants, Rosenberg said.
