UPS increased its revenue 15% in 2021, while profits leaped 860%—despite competition with Amazon, supply-chain setbacks, high consumer expectations, inflation, and a tight labor market all putting pressure on the company. Along the way it sold UPS Freight, part of its trucking infrastructure, to TFI International for $800 million and acquired Roadie, a company that takes advantage of the growing gig economy by matching drivers with deliveries they can complete during other trips they’ve already planned out. UPS was also a central artery for vaccine dispersal in 2021, delivering more than 1.1 billion doses in more than 110 countries.
