United Parcel Service: Amazon plans move into US delivery businessUnited Parcel Service (UPS) and FedEx saw their share prices slip in trading after a report that Amazon is preparing to start a delivery service called Shipping with Amazon for businesses.

The retailer expects to roll out the new delivery service in Los Angeles in coming weeks, the Journal said.There is "tremendous opportunity" in the shipment of goods from businesses to consumers and "more growth coming to the sector and UPS, irrespective of how other companies shift strategies," said Steve Gaut, a UPS spokesman. He declined to comment on Amazon's strategy.- BloombergTHE IRISH TIMES

The global logistics company is headquartered in Sandy Springs, Georgia, which is part of the Greater Atlanta metropolitan area. UPS delivers more than 15 million packages a day to more than 5.1 million customers in more than 220 countries and territories worldwide. UPS is known for its brown delivery trucks and uniforms, hence the company nickname "Brown." UPS also operates its own airlineand air cargo delivery service based in Louisville, Kentucky. On August 28, 1907, James Casey founded the American Messenger Company with fellow teenager Claude Ryan in Seattle, Washington. In 1913, the first deliver car appeared, a Model T Ford. Casey and Ryan merged with a competitor, Evert McCabe and formed Merchants Parcel Delivery. Consolidated delivery was also introduced, combining packages addressed to a certain neighbourhood onto one delivery vehicle. In 1930, a consolidated service began in New York City, and soon after in other major cities in the East and Midwest. In 1937, the logo was redesigned to reflect the company's new name United Parcel Service. All UPS vehicles have been painted Pullman brown.
