Executive Summary

UPS is the largest cargo carrier into Miami International Airport. For big holidays, UPS adds flights. For example, during the weeks leading up to Valentine's Day, UPS adds 13 flights of its Boeing 757 and 767 "Brown tails" - all temperature controlled - to ship about 7 million roses, most of them red. Most clients use UPS Air Cargo Service, and the flowers typically arrive in Miami within 14 to 18 hours. Some customers also use UPS Trade Direct Air, which helps the flowers clear customs as a consolidated shipment before UPS distributes the flowers directly to multiple locations.
