Boeing delivers UPS's 50th 767 Freighter
Boeing and UPS celebrated the delivery of the cargo operator's 50th 767-300 Freighter yesterday. 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 52.7 tonnes of revenue cargo with intercontinental range, the 767 Freighter is suitable for developing new long-haul, regional or feeder markets.
"UPS is one of the world's premiere 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."
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.
