Boeing Delivers UPS's 50th 767 Freighter

Cargo Operator Boasts World's Largest Fleet Of 767 Freighters

The 50th 767-300 freighter was delivered to UPS by Boeing on Tuesday. The airplane joins the world's largest 767 Freighter fleet.

"The Boeing 767 Freighter is the workhorse of our fleet," said UPS Airlines President Mitch Nichols. "This versatile widebody is an important element in UPS's global logistics network, helping us reach over 200 countries and territories each day."
 
The 767 Freighter is based on the popular 767-300ER (extended range) passenger airplane. Able to carry approximately 58 tons (52.7 tonnes) of revenue cargo with intercontinental range, the 767 Freighter is ideal for developing new long-haul, regional or feeder markets. "UPS is one of the world's premier air-cargo carriers," said John Wojick, Boeing Commercial Airplanes vice president of North America Sales. "They have demonstrated the versatility and high reliability of the 767 Freighter, helping establish it as the preferred airplane for the mid-sized freighter market."
 
UPS benefits from the 767's established schedule reliability, performance and operational advantages. Schedule reliability -- an industry measure of departure from the gate within 15 minutes of scheduled time -- is over 98 percent for the 767. UPS boasts a 767 Freighter fleet reliability of over 99 percent.
 
In addition to the 50 767 Freighters, Boeing also has delivered 75 757-200 Package Freighters and eight 747-400 Freighters to UPS. The Louisville, Kentucky-based logistics services provider has nine more 767 Freighters on order. (Image provided by Boeing)
