This is a moment like no other and it demands the expertise that UPS has developed in Healthcare Logistics. We are moving the world forward by delivering what matters and UPS is proud to be a key player in the global public-private partnerships helping to distribute vaccines to the world.”

Zebra Technologies has launched a new children's book titled Zippy's Special Gift, a positive story focused on Zebra’s mascot Zippy, which celebrates differences and teaches young readers to enjoy the uniqueness of who they are. Proceeds from the book sales benefit Bernie's Book Bank. It has received a Gold Mom’s Choice Award in the Children’s Picture Books – Specialized Concepts/Differently Abled category and a 5-star review from Readers’ Favorite Book Reviews. Zebra CEO Anders Gustafsson states in the book foreword, “Zebra Technologies believes in ‘doing well by doing good’ – sharing our gifts with customers, partners, and local communities through philanthropy and volunteer activities. Zippy’s experience reflects the opportunity we all have to celebrate our differences and create a sense of belonging for everyone. We are excited to share this story and shine a light on Bernie’s Book Bank and its positive role in supporting young readers.”
