UPS was founded in 1907 by the 19-year-old James E. Casey with a starting capital of 100 USD and under the name American Messenger Company.
It was not until the company’s expansion from Seattle to Oakland (California) in 1918, that the name was changed to United Parcel Service.

 

Today, UPS belongs to the largest express and package shipment services in the world, and is a leading global provider of specialised transport and logistics services in more than 200 countries and regions.
