Got a kick out of the last line in this blurb. Just how far did negotiations get? lol UPS News for UPSers Published on 12-09-2011 08:56 AM Courier deal stalls on UPS - New York Post United Parcel Service has hit a bump in the road as it tries to expand beyond package delivery. UPS recently came close to a deal to acquire Stamford, Conn.-based World Courier for $500 million before talks ended, sources told The Post. World Courier was reluctant to sell to UPS, perhaps because current management wanted to remain in charge, sources said.
