Boeing announced Monday that UPS ordered eight more 767 freighter aircraft from the aerospace company.
The package delivery giant will start receiving the new planes in 2025, with an "additional 767-300 Boeing Converted Freighter (BCF) entering service in late 2023," Boeing said in a press release. UPS previously ordered 19 Boeing 767 freighters in December 2021.
"The additional 767s will help us continue to deliver what matters to UPS customers around the world. This is a very versatile aircraft that we operate across every region of the globe," Nando Cesarone, the U.S. executive vice president and president of UPS, said in the release. "With these aircraft, our fleet will continue to be among the most modern in our industry, meeting our customers' needs while improving our efficiency, sustainability, and reliability."
