Despite experiencing a modest 2.4% sales increase between 2012 and 2013, the Atlanta-based shipping company with over 120,000 employees made a commitment to hire 50,000 veterans by 2018. In 2013 alone, UPS hired 13,000, which suggests an aggressive plan for growth. This comes in light of a severe winter in the United States followed by an “unprecedented increase in volume of services,” according to CEO Scott Davis. The company’s year-end report showed that 2013 total shipments were up to 4.3 billion, a 3.9% increase from 2012.
