United Parcel Service (UPS) is the world's largest package delivery company and a global leader in supply chain and freight services. Big Brown offers a broad portfolio of global trade solutions in more than 200 countries and territories worldwide.

Originally founded in Seattle by enterprising 19-year-old Jim Casey with a $100 loan, UPS would not make metro Atlanta its base of operations until relocating to Sandy Springs in 1991. Today, the company operates primarily across three business segments: U.S. Domestic Package; International Package; and Supply Chain & Freight. The company operates a ground fleet of approximately 107,000 vehicles, and an air fleet of about 570 aircraft.

UPS' Atlanta operations include their 735,000 square foot Sandy Springs headquarters campus, the 310,000 square foot Alpharetta headquarters of the company's Supply Chain Solutions group, and a 175,000 square foot information technology facility also located in Alpharetta. Additionally, job seekers will find opportunities at the various package and freight operations facilities and service centers UPS operates in the atlanta area.
