08:39 EDTUPSUPS announces dimensional weight changes
UPS announced that, beginning December 29, in the United States, dimensional weight will be utilized to calculate the billable weight of a shipment on all UPS Ground services and UPS Standard to Canada packages. UPS already applies this method for UPS air services, UPS Standard to Mexico ground services and for UPS Ground packages and UPS Standard to Canada packages measuring 3 cubic feet in size or larger. In addition, UPS Freight recently began offering an optional, simplified density-based pricing program to a segment of its customer base. Traditionally, the less-than-truckload, or LTL, industry has utilized the National Motor Freight Classification, or NMFC, system, a commodity-based standard that can be complex for both customers and carriers. The UPS Freight Density-Based Rating LTL pricing solution is based solely on the weight and cubic volume of a shipment rather than the NMFC system. This program benefits customers that construct shipments in the most efficient manner and reduce the resources required to transport their goods.

17:52 EDTUPSUPS pilots President issues statement on FedEx/ALPA tentative agreement
The following statement is from Captain Robert Travis, President of the Independent Pilots Association regarding the tentative pilot labor agreement between FedEx (FDX) and ALPA: "We congratulate our pilot peers and FedEx on reaching a new tentative collective bargaining agreement. While we have not seen the details, the IPA will refrain from commenting on the merits of the tentative agreement until the ALPA ratification process has been completed. If approved, however, the FedEx pilot contract will bring labor peace to our largest competitor. In sharp contrast, UPS (UPS) management has created a bitter standoff with its pilot employees, unnecessarily dragging out contract talks for four years. UPS must not allow itself to be left behind by FedEx. The IPA calls on UPS management to work with its pilots to expeditiously achieve an agreement."
