Supply Chain Basics

Take the Kinks out of Your Supply Chain

Every business benefits from greater efficiency--including yours. It's all about logistics.

We help customers worldwide, smoothing the flow of goods, information, and funds with our broad product portfolio. Transform your supply chain into a competitive advantage with our integrated solutions.

Freight Services

We've got the world's largest delivery network with services that fit your specific needs. Our palletized and containerized freight services provide flexibility for you and your customers. Whether you need it tomorrow, next week, or next month, our air, ocean, and ground freight capabilities deliver for you every time.

Control Your Imports

Managing imports and getting goods to your customers is crucial. We help make it easier.

UPS Import ControlSM lets you create a shipment from another country; control the creation of shipment labels, commercial invoices, and billing information; and monitor your shipment for better planning and forecasting.

For more complex supply chains, UPS Supplier Management provides the necessary tools to more precisely manage the front end of your supply chain. Prevent stockouts, shortages, delivery delays, with access to vital order, item, and vendor fulfillment information right down to the SKU.

Distribution Solutions

Maximize efficiencies in your warehouse with help from our logistics experts. We can work with you to reconfigure, expand, relocate, replace, or refine your distribution center--making a positive impact on your bottom line.

Or maybe the best solution for your company is skipping the distribution center altogether. Eliminate unnecessary stops and keep your inventory moving with UPS Trade Direct®.

We consolidate freight, provide customs clearance, transport, and deliver to multiple addresses within the destination country. We cut time and give you faster order-to-cash cycles.
