UPS (NYSE:UPS) today announced it has ordered 14 new Boeing 747-8 cargo jets to meet increased demand for the company’s air shipping services. UPS’s long term strategy is to increase customers’ access to global markets and air shipments are a major growth opportunity for the company. The 747-8s will enable UPS to begin a cascade of aircraft route reassignments that will add significant air capacity to the company’s busiest lanes, thereby optimizing global air network capacity well beyond the impact of adding new cargo jets.
