When it comes to March Madness®, everyone loves a Cinderella story. Last year, Butler University was a Cinderella repeat – advancing to the finals during the 2010 and 2011 tournaments. And this year, Norfolk State, Lehigh and Ohio achieved “David vs. Goliath” glory in the first round.

At UPS, we love Cinderella stories too. Especially in business. Our “Game Changers” campaign celebrates the story of people who see opportunities and solutions that others overlook. And in the process, achieve success. Companies like Southwest Airlines and UPS customer Zappos were one-time upstarts who reached success with ingenuity, teamwork, vision and smart planning. We call that logistics at UPS.

It seems like summer was just a few short weeks ago, but there’s no denying it … the holiday season is here. And with the holidays comes logistics. Shopping for gifts, planning parties, sending greeting cards and shipping.

To help get holiday logistics under control, UPS and The UPS Store will host a series of Twitter parties to spark ideas and share tips for holiday planning. Joining us in the Twitter conversations are savvy bloggers who will lead the discussions along with a team of panelists. In the spirit of transparency, we want to disclose that we are compensating the blogger moderators and panelists.

Along with great ideas, our Twitter parties will feature prize drawings every 15 minutes.

When it’s Hot Outside, UPS Helps Anderson Seafoods Keep Deliveries Cold

At UPS, we ♥ logistics and ♥ our small business customers

Memorial Day is the unofficial start of grilling season and if you’re hosting a holiday BBQ make sure you have plenty of tasty grilled eats like chicken, burgers and veggies. And if you want a healthy option, throw some seafood on the grill. 

From shrimp and scallops to salmon, UPS small business customer Anderson Seafoods has it. The company has been providing seafood to high-end restaurants and hotels for more than 30 years, but now my weekend chef friends can shop and order right from the company’s website. “We’re delivering Alaskan Halibut, Copper River Salmon and West Australian Lobster Tails right to people’s homes,” said Dennis Anderson, chief executive officer. If you order by 1 p.m. PST today, UPS will ship it Next Day Air and have it arrive on your doorstep by 10:30 a.m. tomorrow.
