UPS Announces New Rates for 2001

ATLANTA, Dec. 28, 2000 - UPS (NYSE: UPS) today announced new rates to
take effect on Feb. 5, 2001.

Air express rates for UPS Next Day Air(R), 2nd Day Air(R) and 3 Day
Select(R) will increase 3.7 percent. UPS Commercial Ground services
will increase 3.1 percent across all weights and zones. The residential
surcharge has been changed from $1.00 per package to $1.05 per package.
UPS international export rates from the U.S. will increase 2.9 percent.

The temporary fuel surcharge of 1.25 percent, which was implemented in
August 2000 to compensate for unusually high oil and fuel prices, will
remain in effect with the hope that fuel prices will eventually
stabilize at lower levels.

The new UPS rates, as well as any changes to various other services,
will be available on UPS's Web site at beginning Jan. 4,
2001.  Regular account holders will also receive 2001 UPS Service
Guides in January, unless they opted to receive rate information
through a new environmental-friendly paperless option being offered
this year.


UPS is the world's largest express carrier and largest package delivery
company, serving more than 200 countries and territories around the
world. Headquartered in Atlanta, Ga., the company is located on the Web
