    UPS does not want a white Christmas - Business First

    As the Wall Street Journal reported, UPS (NYSE: UPS) maintains a group of flight controllers and meteorologists at its hub operations in Louisville who work to keep flights — and millions of packages — moving through its global system on time.

    The report quotes a spokesman at Louisville-based UPS Airlines who says the company loses $5 to $30 for every package that is delayed, meaning winter weather and other delays can cost shippers worldwide billions of dollars.
