    UPS says it tracks shipments of prohibited substances after Trump comment - Reuters

    United Parcel Service Inc said on Friday it has been keeping a tab on shipments of prohibited substances by working with governments, in a response to U.S. President Donald Trump’s call to package delivery companies to refuse deliveries of synthetic opioid fentanyl from China.

    Trump has asked package delivery companies UPS, as well as FedEx Corp and online retailer Amazon.com Inc to decline deliveries of the substance from China, which on Friday announced plans to impose new tariffs on U.S. goods.

    Where'sMyRegularDriver? Could you describe the ruckus, sir?

    If you have a 150 lb pkg, tell your sup it's filled with fentanyl and you can't deliver it per the president.

    Fedex has flagged these bad shipments at every scan, when possible, as soon as possible, hopefully stopping them before they are "Out for Delivery". Not just drugs.
