Mid-sized to large businesses with current import/export needs, or seeking to grow their international customer base or expand geographically into new markets–without the heavy investment in infrastructure.
With UPS Trade Direct, we'll consolidate your packages and freight into pallets, transport the pallet to your destination country, clear it through customs as a single entry, then distribute and deliver to multiple addresses. This strategy eliminates the need for multiple carriers and multiple customs clearances, and can help improve customs compliance. You'll also streamline your fulfillment process, saving significant time and costs—and even expediting your order-to-payment cycle.
