When your company’s primary mission is to test the boundaries of logistics to better serve customers, a diverse, inclusive team — with women in leadership positions — is crucial to fostering the kind of innovation that leads to success.

The world’s package delivery leader is also a leader in the emerging, potentially high-margin delivery-drone field. UPS’s Flight Forward unit is partnering with health care systems and others in North Carolina, Virginia, and Utah to deliver patient samples to labs, prescriptions to patients, and supplies to hospitals. Delivery by drone is up to 10 times as fast as by van, as the unmanned aerial craft fly past traffic jams. And since they don’t choke roadways, drones help reduce CO2 emissions.
