Atlanta, November 01, 2010
UPS is fully cooperating with authorities around the world as they investigate potentially suspicious packages being shipped through cargo networks.
Because security is of the utmost importance, UPS has suspended service out of Yemen until further notice.
UPS employs a multi-layered approach to ensure security. We have processes, systems and procedures in place designed to protect our people, aircraft and customers’ shipments and they exceed current regulatory requirements. We also work routinely with security agencies all around the world to maintain and enhance security. It would be counter-productive to the effectiveness of our security efforts to discuss them publicly.
UPS will continue to partner with authorities, industry and customers to address security issues.
