    CARE, the Atlanta-based international relief organization, wanted more than money from United Parcel Service Inc., the world's largest package delivery company.

    In 2007, CARE asked UPS, a long-time cash donor also headquartered in Atlanta, to lend its knowledge and experience in logistics to help develop a more efficient delivery system for disaster relief supplies.
