UPS Achieves Record Earnings Per Share

Adjusted operating profit was $499 million, down slightly, as customer and product mix changes drove a 3.5% decline in export yields, on a currency neutral basis. Adjusted operating margin of 15.6% remains industry leading.

As a result of the pension mark-to-market adjustment, the segment reported an operating loss of $442 million, on a U.S. GAAP basis.

Earlier this month, UPS announced a new express air freight service, UPS Worldwide Express Freightâ„¢, for urgent, time-sensitive and high-value international heavyweight shipments. This new service is an extension of the UPS Worldwide Express package portfolio and offers customers a seamless experience between shipping express package and express freight.
