UPS is a Leader in Transportation Technology and Others are Taking Notice

2016 was a good year for UPS. Throughout the year we were recognized for our advancements in business excellence, technology and sustainability. Take a look at some of our top honors to learn more about our commitment to growth and innovation.

In the area of Business Excellence, two of our executive leaders were recognized for their industry thought leadership. UPS CEO David Abney was one of fifty CEOs invited to the 11th Annual Board of Boards: Competing for the Long Run, a Forbes-named top three “power player” event for CEOs. While UPS VP Alan Amling was named one of Global Trade magazine’s 13 Logistics Industry Thought Leaders.

UPS is no stranger to technological innovation, and in 2016 we continued on our quest to transform transportation technology. We won the 2016 INFORMS Franz Edelman Award For Changing The Future Of Package Delivery for our proprietary routing software ORION (On-Road Integrated Optimization and Navigation).

In 2016, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) presented UPS with the SmartWay Excellence Award which recognizes outstanding environmental performance and leadership.

Winning these awards would not be possible without the work of our talented and passionate employees. If you’d like to join a team of industry leaders paving the way for future generations, explore career opportunities at UPS.
