UPS unveils new look for 747 jet ahead of Expo 2020 Dubai
June 04, 2018: UPS, official logistics partner of much awaited event Expo 2020 Dubai, has modified one of its 747 jumbo jets ahead of the event.
One of the 747 jumbo jets dedicated for long-haul international use is sporting a modified paint scheme.
The supply chain giant has only modified the livery of an aircraft four other times in the airline’s 30-year history. Each of those times signifies a major news event – this time, it’s to mark UPS’s unique role in delivering one of the world’s most complex logistics challenges at the upcoming Expo 2020 Dubai.
Millions of visitors from around the world are expected to attend the Expo in the United Arab Emirates.
During the event’s six month run, UPS will manage all of the logistics of the event, using a team of nearly 1,000 employees and a dedicated 290,000 square-foot warehouse.
