UPS’s international revenue grew by 5.3% to $5.073 billion, with operating profits of $1.193 billion. This was due to a growth in revenue of 14.8% per piece handled.

“I want to thank UPSers around the world for delivering outstanding service to our customers,” said Carol Tomé, UPS chief executive officer. “While the external environment is ever changing, our better not bigger strategic framework has fundamentally improved nearly every aspect of our business, enabling greater agility and strong financial performance.” 

UPS is among the ‘Big 4’ logistics companies whose rivals are FedEx, DHL and Amazon, which combined dominate the world logistics and delivery markets. Its rivals will be posting similar results unless there are any untoward surprises.
