Shrink the World and Cross Borders More Easily

Many of the world's most important healthcare companies work with UPS--and for good reason. With UPS, you can access patient populations in markets around the globe through our existing network while minimizing investment in your own infrastructure and assets. We've invested heavily in technology, equipment, facilities, and in our people and their training to manage key healthcare issues from customs to regulatory compliance.


Ensure uninterrupted supply of healthcare products in established markets and tackle new ones with our flexible transportation options for package, freight, ground, ocean, and air. As the world's largest customs broker, UPS can help you avoid delays and reduce the risk of penalties, getting your products to patients faster and more reliably.


When you're manufacturing overseas or sourcing materials, it can be challenging to plan, ship, and keep up with importing rules and regulations. But experts at UPS can help you gain more control over your imports. Our team and technology make it easy to source, plan, ship, and import products from around the world.

You'll be able to find and manage harmonized tariff codes, calculate landed cost estimates, check compliance information, and more. And by combining UPS transportation services with our brokerage services, you can reduce fines, holds, and inbound shipment delays which could impact production lines and customer service levels.


Regulations are becoming more and more complex. You need to stay compliant so that you don't risk losing business from current customers or new ones. But it takes people, experience, and solid processes to ensure compliance in markets around the world.

UPS maintains appropriate, geographic-specific regulatory requirements including FDA and DEA, Health Canada, EMA and HAS, VAWD, and all applicable government accreditations and licenses. We maintain more than 800 specific state and federal licenses in the U.S. alone.

We have an experienced global staff of Quality Assurance and Regulatory Affairs people dedicated to healthcare. We can help you stay compliant with today's regulations here and abroad, and keep you ahead of tomorrow's regulatory changes to avoid surprises in the supply chain.
