Recently I had to opportunity to visit the birthplace of United Parcel Service in Seattle Washington.
Founded from humble beginnings, UPS has grown to one of the largest companies in the world.
Its humble beginnings began in a small basement office by two brothers and one bicycle. (The bicycle wasn’t brown)From that, it grew to a worldwide small parcel delivery service employing almost 400,000 employees.
In a way UPS is an Amerian dream and exemplifies the America way. It demonstrates how anyone even those coming from humble beginnings can achieve anything they desire, as long as they have the will and the ability. UPS grew with America, coming on the scene at the beginning of the industrial revolution, it was a beneficiary as well as a contributor to America’s success. Neither would have survived without the other.
UPS needed a capitalistic, free enterprise market to survive and America needed a reliable and dependable delivery system to enable it to move products from one location to another in a timely manner.
