ATLANTA (AP) — UPS says it is increasing its quarterly dividend by 8 percent as a result the shipping company's improved cash flow.

The Atlanta-based company said late Thursday that it will pay a dividend of 67 cents per share March 11 to shareholders of record as of Feb. 24. That's up from its most recent dividend of 62 cents per share.

UPS said that the company generated $5.3 billion in free cash flow during 2013, allowing it to reinvest in the business and improve returns to shareholders.
