retail news in context, analysis with attitude

Reuters has a story about United Parcel Service (UPS) and how the company is expanding and forging new services.

One statement that stood out: the comment that "rising demand for drugs and medical devices will create a large revenue opportunity for UPS, the executives said, as aging populations and rising income fuel demand for home delivery of healthcare products. Pharmacists at UPS's hub in Louisville, Kentucky, for example, fill orders for pharmaceutical companies, medical device makers and wholesalers."

Healthcare, in fact, is called UPS's "fastest-growing segment after e-commerce."

That's amazing. And worthy of note. Opportunities come in all sorts of fascinating and unexpected forms.
