In 1907, at the age of just 19, James E Casey borrowed $100 from a friend and started American Messenger Company, a local messenger company in Seattle, making most deliveries on foot and bicycle. After six years, the company acquired its first delivery car, a Model T Ford and in 1919 changed the business name to United Parcel Service.
