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. This agreement provides for the continuation of certain pension and postretirement benefits within UPS-sponsored plans that we estimate will require us to record an additional pre-tax expense when we close on the UPS Freight divestiture and amend the impacted plans. Upon closing, we also anticipate recording a pre-tax curtailment gain resulting from the acceleration of prior service credits. We currently anticipate that a favorable impact from reducing future benefit accruals for UPS Freight employees will be offset by net losses recorded in AOCI. The divestiture of UPS Freight may require an interim measurement of certain of our U.S. pension and postretirement benefit plans. We expect to record the impacts discussed herein by the second quarter of 2021.
As of December 31, 2020, UPS Freight was classified as held for sale in the consolidated balance sheet. For additional information, see note 4.

Examples include: the sale of a capital stock issue, purchase of a business, settlement of litigation, catastrophic loss, significant foreign exchange rate changes, loans to insiders or affiliates, and transactions not in the ordinary course of business.
