Logistics Expertise for the Military Supply Chain and Warfighter Support

You've got warehouses and staging areas around the world. Space isn't an issue for you, but you want to ensure that space--and every other stop along your supply chain--is optimized.

Engage us as a third party logistics (3PL) provider, and our experts will examine your supply chain, combining business analysis and advanced modeling tools to align infrastructures, processes, and policies. We'll look at all supply chain components, like inbound and outbound transportation, suppliers, facility location, and warehouse design, and make recommendations on how you can improve speed and minimize cost.

Best-in-Class Kitting Services

Strategic use of 3PLs allows you to focus on your core strengths and let designated teams with specialized skills handle other, non-core functions. With our kitting services, you get a team to run your warehouse and pick, pack, and ship kits, enhancing your responsiveness while reducing assets and related costs.

At UPS, we work as partners to determine the best options for your needs and provide you opportunities for greater flexibility, improved coordination, and maximum readiness.

Deployment by the Numbers

Equipped to solve challenges from medical to military supplies and meet requests from troops to non-governmental organizations (NGOs), our distribution network really adds up.
