In a significant move, UPS announced plans to cut 12,000 jobs and explore strategic alternatives for its truckload brokerage business, Coyote Logistics. This decision is part of a broader initiative to streamline operations and improve financial performance amidst a challenging market environment.

1. Job Cuts and Operational Efficiency: UPS’s decision to reduce its workforce aims to save approximately $1 billion in 2024.
