UPS Airlines is a cargo airline. The fourth-largest cargo airline worldwide (in terms of freight volume flown). In 1980, UPS opened its first major hub for sorting packages transported by aircraft, located in Louisville, Kentucky. Located at the westernmost point of the Eastern time zone, Louisville is accessible across the majority of the contiguous United States in less than three hours. Through its contractors, UPS flew its packages using a fleet of commercial aircraft converted to freighters, including Boeing 727s, Douglas DC-8s, and Boeing 747s.
