Cemelog Ltd.
In April 2013, we announced the acquisition of Cemelog Ltd. (“Cemelog”), a Hungary-based medical logistics provider that operates in Central and Eastern Europe. The acquisition will add 255,000 square feet of dedicated healthcare logistics facilities in Budapest, Hungary, and further our ability to offer customers expanded access to regional healthcare logistics expertise. Cemelog will be included in our Supply Chain & Freight reporting segment upon the close of the acquisition, which is expected in the second quarter of 2013. The acquisition will not be material to our consolidated financial position or results of operations.

Collective Bargaining Agreements
On April 25, 2013, we reached a tentative agreement with the Teamsters on two, new five-year contracts in the U.S. Domestic Package and UPS Freight business units. Subject to ratification by the UPS Teamster-represented employees, the new agreements would take effect on August 1, 2013.
