Improve Speed to Market
Improve international supply chain efficiency by accelerating speed to market and increasing visibility and control. UPS Trade Direct Air effectively manages time-sensitive international air freight shipments from select airports in the U.S., Asia, Europe, and the Americas. Move shipments seamlessly from the factory to end customers or retail stores. Get new and high-value products to market faster while reducing unnecessary handling and storage costs in the process.
Faster Clearance and Delivery
By combining international air freight, customs brokerage, and multi-modal delivery services, UPS Trade Direct Air helps streamline your supply chain. As with all UPS Trade Direct services, UPS consolidates your shipment, brokers it, and transports it to the destination country. Upon clearance and arrival at the gateway, UPS deconsolidates the bulk shipment into individual shipments and promptly delivers them directly to your customers or retail stores, bypassing warehouses and distribution centers.

- Door-to-door or airport-to-door service and consolidated customs clearance to improve your speed to market
