This UPS Game Changers campaign video focuses on a game-changing idea for business: Going global. The best companies understand there are no borders to business. Historically, the most important part of business was your location. Today it's not about where your product is made. It's made in the world. Logistics enables any size business to source locally, but to be successful, you have to sell globally. Especially for small businesses, the biggest opportunity for growth is outside the U.S. Logistics breaks down the barriers to international trade, so you don't have to be fluent in a country's language, currency or tariffs. UPS is the Official Logistics Supplier for the NCAA®.

Whether it's saving 83,000 metric tonnes of CO2 emissions, achieving a net reduction in domestic energy use at United States facilities, or expanding the deployment of telematics technology to eliminate more than 98 million minutes of engine idling time, Scott Wicker knows a thing or two about ensuring that UPS's integrated network is the most efficient it can be. "Ten years ago, UPS began to construct its first Corporate Sustainability Report. Back then, the effort was seminal, championed by a small group of individuals who saw the connection between UPS's behind-the-scenes efforts at serving the community and operating well with the emerging stakeholder cry for more transparency about business's impact on society," explains Wicker, UPS's first Chief Sustainability Officer, who took the sustainability reins in 2011. "Today, the report and UPS's sustainability program is a mature, robust part of the company's strategy. Sustainability is well integrated into corporate planning, engineering, operations and employee programs. It is part of our core." Wicker sat down with Lynnette McIntire, Editor of the Corporate Sustainability Report, to discuss why this year's report, which received an A+ from the Global Reporting Initiative, is important for customers, employees, and the community. Wicker addresses: Why the theme of the report is "Logistics at the Core" What an A+ rating means Why transparency is important to customers The three legs of sustainability Our score from the Carbon Disclosure Project What is material at UPS Our plans for alternative fuels and greenhouse gas reduction What our carbon neutral shipping program is

It was windy. With gusts up to 30mph, the two teams faced off in a competitive battle. But it was logistics that decided the game. With seconds left, Boston College Quarterback Doug Flutie dropped back to make the game winning pass. He bought time as his linemen made their blocks. As he scrambled, the receiver jotted down the field with practiced precision. And as the gameclock expired, Flutie heaved the fated pass through the air and into the hands of a Boston College wide receiver for the win. It took everyone doing the right thing. At the right time. That's logistics.

UPS Moves the 2012 NCAA® Men's Final Four® Floor In March 2012, a 60' by 120' foot hardwood floor, built by Connor Sport Court in Michigan, took a 1,000+ mile journey to New Orleans, Louisiana. It was on its way to becoming one of the biggest stages in sports—the surface on which the 2012 NCAA® Men's Final Four® basketball games would be played. Getting the specially designed court to the Big Dance® with no room for error or delay was a major logistical undertaking—and a perfect job for UPS. As part of a carefully executed plan, UPS All-Star Team driver Phil Wolske smoothly transported this massive, nearly impossible-to-replace item across the country, even stopping along the way for seven events bringing the excitement of NCAA® March Madness® to fans. Making "One Shining Moment" happen? That's logistics. NCAA, Final Four, March Madness and Big Dance are licensed trademarks of the National Collegiate Athletic Association.

Flu Knew? UPS Ships Vaccines to Laos: Video by Karen Cole I drive by at least two Walgreens pharmacies on the way to work every morning. As you might have seen from the store's windows and signs, it's more convenient than ever to swing by and get a flu shot. I was thinking about this when I found out our UPS healthcare experts were at the heart of planning a major logistics feat just last month: shipping 375,000 doses of donated flu vaccines by Walgreens to Laos. As the U.S. flu season waned in late spring, the flu season for Southeast Asiawill be starting up in a few weeks. Laotians don't have access to a corner Walgreens, so it was really important to get the vaccines to them safely and securely. And, if you had to check a map like I did to find out the distance from the U.S. to Laos...it's really far from around the corner! In my quest to find out more, I talked to Margaret Clayton and Dimitri Zacharenko, two expert "healthcare logisticians" who provide temperature-sensitive solutions for UPS customers and helped plan this shipment. Margaret is a manager of UPS Temperature Sensitive Sales and Dimitri is a manager of UPS Temperature Sensitive Healthcare Solutions. Here's what they told me: Karen: How exactly did UPS get involved in planning this shipment? It sounds like extreme logistics. Margaret: Walgreens approached us for a solution to ship the flu vaccines but they were challenged with how to get them from storage in our healthcare facility inLouisville, Ky., to the Lao PDR Ministry of Health 9,000 miles away. They needed a viable way to keep the vaccines within a strict temperature range of 2°C to 8°C the entire way; otherwise, they spoil and can't be used. Getting to Laos is challenging not only because of the distance, but it's not the easiest location to reach with such a sensitive shipment. The transportation options are limited because of infrastructure challenges. Karen: So, how did we do it? Dimitri: A lot of very precise planning. Just like we approach any healthcare shipment with temperature-sensitive needs, besides knowing where it's coming from and where it needs to go, we first have to investigate a series of precise details including: What's the type of product being shipped and the temperature range it can sustain? What type of container will the product be in? Are there any regulatory licensing requirements? Are there customs issues? What are the time constraints? Margaret: And with this request, we only had less than a week to plan so we had to act quickly. In total, it involved almost 50 UPS employees in the U.S. and in Asia working together from our healthcare facility staff, to UPS Airlines, to our freight forwarding and brokerage units. The shipment needed to travel across two continents and over five stops. The planning was a round-the-clock effort by a large team thinking of every small detail. Karen: I have to be honest -- it might seem like a logistical nightmare to most. We must really love logistics. Dimitri: Well, we also had to think about contingency plans. You can't forget that. There could have been any number of potential issues that arose along the way, from customs clearance delays, to security, to temperature fluctuations. You're basically traveling in varying temperatures and potential extremes from Louisville to Anchorage, Alaska, where temperatures can be very cold, to Thailand and Laos where the weather is hot and humid. The flu vaccines were kept secure using our UPS Temperature True air freight service and they traveled in two PharmaPort 360 containers to keep the vaccines at the required temperature. Karen: Very cool -- I mean, literally...the containers are like high-tech flying refrigerators. Dimitri: Yes, you're right. The two PharmaPort 360 containers kept the temperature very stable over the five-day trip toLaos, never deviating by more than 1 or 2 degrees. And because of the containers' built-in technology, our control tower agents monitoring the shipment were in constant contact with our operational handlers at every touch-point along the route. That way, we could act quickly if something didn't go as planned and put our contingencies in place. The shipment arrived in perfect condition. Margaret: At the end of the day, not only did Walgreens trust us to keep $9 million worth of vaccines safe, but we had to think about the value of what this meant to the people inLaos who might not otherwise have access to a flu vaccine. It was important that we got it right. We had to have all our "T"s crossed and "I"s dotted. There was no room for error. Check out this video that shows the cool cargo in action.

NASCAR race teams take telecommuting to an entirely different level. They employ massive tractor-trailers to transport the team from track to track, February to November. There are two cars in each hauler, but they occupy less than half the space in the trailer. Beneath the cars one will find an astonishing array of tools, parts, uniforms -- even entire replacement engines -- AND a command center room, where team members gather to monitor weather forecasts, plan raceday strategy or just grab a quick bite. The hauler drivers must have honorary PhD's in logistics because they are master planners and packers -- they know exactly where to find any item in the hauler, right down to each tiny nut, bolt or screw. Without perfectly planned storage allocation and packing methods, it would be impossible to fit the tons of metal, plastic, fabric and electronics into those rolling logistics hubs.
