On January 24, 2021, we entered into a definitive agreement to divest our UPS Freight business to TFI International Inc. for $800 million, subject to working capital and other adjustments. The following table summarizes the carrying values of the assets and liabilities classified as held for sale in our consolidated balance sheet as of December 31, 2020 (in millions):
Self-insurance reserves for the UPS Freight business and obligations for benefits earned within UPS-sponsored pension and postretirement medical benefit plans will be retained by us at closing and are not included in the amounts presented above.
Upon classification as held for sale, we recognized a total impairment charge of $686 million within Other expenses in the statements of consolidated income. This was comprised of a goodwill impairment charge of $494 million and a valuation allowance to adjust the carrying value of the disposal group to fair value less cost to sell of $192 million.
We expect the transaction, which is subject to customary closing conditions and regulatory approvals, to close during the second quarter of 2021.
The entire disclosure related to a disposal group. Includes, but is not limited to, a discontinued operation, disposal classified as held-for-sale or disposed of by means other than sale or disposal of an individually significant component.
