UPS Goes Off Limits on the Travel Channel
Travel Channel's Off Limits

I don’t watch a ton of TV, but of the few shows I do watch, I’m crazy about Off Limits.  And lo and behold, after watching the program for over a year I got the chance to help producers of the show tell the story of UPS’s global air hub, Worldport.  I guess it’s my version of “15 minutes of fame.”  I got a chance to work with the show’s host and a really nice production crew, along with all the awesome UPSers who make Worldport the “eighth wonder of the world.”

The first segment aired last weekend.  The show’s host, Don Wildman, took us on a tour of what makes this massive facility so unique – and interesting.  Don got a chance to “fly” in a UPS flight simulator.  It’s as close as you can get to the real thing.  Watch the video of Don taking a tour of our Global Operations Center.

Segment two is airing this Sunday, July 29th, at 9 a.m. on the Travel Channel.  Worldport itself is the center of attention.  Don and his crew take us on a journey to see the miles of conveyors, high tech scanning equipment, in-coming aircraft and the people who make it all seamless to the outside world.  Be sure to check it out.
