Wolseley North America is a supplier of construction products and services. The company comprises Ferguson Enterprises, Inc., the nation's largest wholesale distributor of plumbing supplies, Stock Building Supply and Wolseley Canada. The company's management proposed making better use of UPS Freight vehicles that, after delivering their loads, returned to base empty. UPS and Wolseley now partner in the "Backhaul" program, where Wolseley sources loads from its vendors for UPS to haul on the return leg of delivery runs, benefiting all three companies - and the environment.
