Trade Management Services Strengthens UPS’s Supply Chain Capabilities Amidst Globalisation and Complexity in Trade Operations
UPS® (NYSE:UPS) announced today the addition of Trade Management Services (TMS), comprising trade consulting, import/export technologies and managed services, to the UPS customs brokerage portfolio in Asia to facilitate customers’ expansion opportunities.
The Asia Pacific region continues to be a dynamic force in global trade, recording the fastest export growth of any region in the first half of 20141. As Asian businesses look towards diversifying with domestic and intra-regional trade to maintain sustainable growth in a challenging and uncertain global economic climate, supply chain management resources and comprehensive expertise are increasingly important for advancement.
“The launch of TMS is part of a long-term strategy to help our customers compete and do cross-border business more effectively. Increasing supply chain and regulatory complexities are barriers to trade, and are driving renewed focus on trade management and compliance,” said Nando Cesarone, President of UPS Asia Pacific Region. “As a value-creating partner, UPS’s extensive portfolio of global compliance, customs brokerage, transportation and logistics services, unites many aspects of the supply chain process into an enhanced solution for our customers.”
