Global logistics giant UPS has increased its investment China through enhancing its service in 20 cities.
Earlier this week, UPS said that this investment “comes at a time of renewed vigor in the Chinese economy” and a strong drive on international trade by the government.
“China has demonstrated a steadfast commitment to furthering sustainable globalization and economic development, as evidenced by its proactive moves around the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), Made in China 2025 plan, and free trade agreements such as the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP),” said Ross McCullough, President of UPS Asia Pacific. “As the lifeblood of trade, logistics is going to play a key role in the long-term success and implementation of these initiatives. UPS’s investments in China are a direct response to this need.”
The 2o cities are: Xi’an, Fuzhou, Hefei, Wuhan, Shenyang, Zhengzhou, Guangzhou, Dongguan, Suzhou, Kunshan, Hangzhou, Qingdao, Ningbo, Xiamen, Wuxi, Chengdu, Foshan, Changzhou, Huizhou, and Nanjing.
Customers in those cities and surrounding areas will now have a range of benefits as a result of this latest round of service enhancements, including:
Extended package pick-up cut-off times by up to 1.5 hours as late as 10:00 PM
Faster transit times by up to one full day from China to key markets in the US, Europe and Asia, with most US and intra-Asia shipments now able to reach their destinations within 24 hours;
More convenient access to the UPS network in China across 33 cities;
Value-added services: Same Day Pick Up, Customs Brokerage and Warehouse Management Solutions.
