UPS was formed in 1907 when founder James Casey began a private messenger and delivery service; American Messenger Company was started in Seattle, Washington. In 1919 the name changed to United Parcel Service as the company began operating beyond Washington. The name was chosen to indicate that all of the company’s geographical operations were united.
The company expanded its business both in terms of its geography and services offered; by the end of the century UPS had become one of the largest delivery firms in the world delivering 15 million packages a day to 6.1 million customers in more than 220 countries and territories around the world. UPS now offers a variety of services including international delivery and freight services as well as supply chain solutions which offers logistical services.
