SR-201 reopens after formic acid spills from delivery truck – KSL

State Route 201 reopened Tuesday afternoon after it was briefly closed when a container holding formic acid fell out of a UPS delivery truck earlier in the day.

Emergency crews responded to a report of a hazmat situation after a container holding approximately 5 liters of formic acid fell out of the delivery truck heading east on S.R. 201 about 11 a.m., Utah Highway Patrol Lt. Todd Royce said.

Royce said the latch of the delivery truck was loose and had opened, allowing the container to fall out of the truck. West Valley Fire Department’s hazardous materials response team responded to clean up the spill and neutralize the acidity.

UPS goes against tradition – outsider named to run its fastest-growing unit – FreightWaves

The keys to UPS Inc.’s fastest-growing and arguably its most pivotal 21st century business have been handed to an outsider.

Earlier this week, Philippe Gilbert took the reins as the first president of the company’s Supply Chain and Freight operation, one of the Atlanta-based company’s three business units. (UPS’ domestic U.S. and international package units have long had presidents.) Gilbert joined UPS from the German firm DB Schenker Logistics, where he ran its 10-country Americas region. He reports to COO Jim Barber, himself an odds-on favorite to be the next CEO of UPS should David Abney, the current chairman and CEO, retire later this year as many UPS-watchers expect.

Gilbert was also named the twelfth member of UPS’ powerful Management Committee, which runs a company whose history and success have been forged by a management-by-consensus philosophy and a promote-from-within culture.

UPS truck crashes into Santa Rosa taqueria – The Press Democrat

A UPS truck crashed into a taqueria in northwest Santa Rosa Thursday morning, causing an unknown amount of damage, according to the restaurant’s owner.

Mendoza Taqueria owner Juan Martin said two employees were in the building when the crash occurred around 9:30 a.m. The truck took down a handicap sign, tree, an outdoor eating area and a container filled with catering supplies before striking the Piner Road taqueria and cracking a corner of the building, he said.

Martin did not have an estimate on the damages.
