Emery Worldwide was a cargo airline, once one of the leading carriers in the cargo airline world.

Emery started in 1946 and was the first freight forwarder to receive a carrier certificate from the United States Government. For 40 years, Emery was the largest freight forwarder/integrated air carrier in the US.

Emery had its planes grounded on August 13, 2001 due to poor aircraft fleet maintenance.[1] It officially ceased operating on December 5, 2001 and as of 2006 has no plan to resume operations. All of Emery's cargo operations have been subcontracted to other airlines.

Emery's successor company, Menlo Worldwide Forwarding, was acquired by UPS at the end of 2004.[2]

At the time of their closing, Emery used Boeing 727, and Douglas DC-8 and DC-10 aircraft to transport freight.

Presently UPS uses the name Emery Worldwide to market the air freight portion of UPS Supply Chain Solutions.[3]
