    UPS announced that it has ordered 14 Boeing 747-8 freighters worth $5.65 billion at list prices. The Atlanta-based cargo giant also agreed to an order for four Boeing 767 freighters worth $848.8 million. It should be noted, however, that clients such as UPS customarily receive significant discounts.
