UPS Expands Logistics Reach to Meet Emerging Demand in China
Press Release

New Facilities in Chengdu and Shanghai Boost Access

SHANGHAI, August 14, 2013
- UPS (NYSE:UPS) today announced the expansion of its presence in China with the addition of two new contract logistics distribution facilities in Chengdu and Shanghai, bringing the total to more than 130 contract logistics facilities, covering 87 cities. The two new facilities are in addition to the UPS healthcare facilities that opened last year in Shanghai and Hangzhou. The contract logistics facilities will provide distribution and warehousing solutions to shippers who want to reach customers within China. These facilities demonstrate UPS continued commitment to serving China's emerging middle class.

According to a recent World Bank report, China is the second largest global economy and the world's largest exporter and manufacturer of goods. The World Bank report continues to predict that China will be the world's largest economy by 2030.

"UPS is committed to Asia and continues to invest through facility expansions to support the growth demands of our customers," said Brendan Canavan, President of UPS Asia Pacific. "Our customers will benefit from our trustworthy and reliable service, proven logistics methods, industry-leading technology solutions, global distribution and multi-modal transportation network.  We are excited about the opportunities in China and the opening of these two facilities underscores our commitment to the market."

The two non-bonded distribution facilities in Chengdu and Shanghai are strategically located in close proximity to international airports and major road networks.  Built with capabilities to support a diverse spectrum of growing Chinese industries - primarily high-tech, industrial manufacturing, aerospace and retail - customers will also have connectivity to UPS global IT platforms for distribution and post-sales support.The new facilities are considered a major part of UPS's efforts to develop a national distribution network in China and strengthen the company's overall portfolio of international capabilities. Each facility is designed with specific regional and market needs in mind.  For more information on Contract Logistics Services in China, visit: http://www.ups.com/chinalogistics.

Chengdu

Keeping with the Chinese government's strategic "Go West" initiative, the new Chengdu facility offers more than 4,400 square meters of warehousing and distribution space.  It provides multinationals looking to conduct business in the region with access to central and western China and the growing cities of Chengdu and Chongqing. The facility is located four kilometers from the Chengdu Shuangliu International Airport, which facilitates convenient access to major foreign markets and is in close proximity to major interstate roads, putting two-thirds of China's Southwest population within a day's drive.

Shanghai

The new Shanghai facility consists of more than 6,500 square meters of distribution space and is less than three kilometers from the UPS International Hub at Shanghai's Pudong Airport, China's largest airport by air cargo volume. The close proximity to the hub enables later cut-off times for express and freight exports to key markets in North America, Europe and within Asia. The new facility, UPS's fourth in the area, is designed to meet the needs of multinational companies looking to increase their business operations in the domestic Shanghai market.

"UPS's team of contract logistics experts and their deep knowledge of customers' needs in China will enable them to tap into UPS's suite of distribution and transportation solutions, innovative technologies, and growing network of facilities." said Craig Foster, UPS Asia Senior Vice President of Supply Chain and Healthcare Logistics. "We are proud of our homegrown team of logisticians who understand the needs of businesses in China."
