Big Brown

This is an interesting book. I’m reading Big Brown, the story of UPS, and I didn’t know who the founder of the company was. Jim Casey, if you’re wondering.

In any case, I didn't realize that throughout most of the 20th century, only the US Postal Service could deliver packages anywhere. UPS had to fight for those rights state by state over the years.

There was a time that UPS could deliver packages from retail stores (how they started) inside cities, like Denver, but couldn't deliver packages from Denver to Colorado Springs, even if they could deliver packages in CO Springs from retailers.
