United Parcel Service, Inc. (or UPS) (NYSE: UPS) is the world's largest package delivery company, delivering over 14 million packages a day to over 200 countries around the world.

UPS has recently expanded its operations to include logistics and other transportation-related areas.

Historically UPS only faced competition from USPS for the inexpensive ground based delivery market. However, FedEx recently expanded into the ground market by acquiring RPS (originally Roadway Package System) and rebranded it as FedEx Ground. In addition, DHL acquired Airborne Express. This acquisition significantly increases DHL's presence in the United States which will add more competition to the ground delivery market.
