Get Your Products to Market Faster
Getting goods to international markets faster than your competitors is critical to your success. Ocean freight may keep costs down, but speed to market is still important to your customers. UPS Trade Direct Ocean lets you maintain the cost benefits of ocean freight while getting your goods to customers days or even weeks faster by bypassing distribution centers.
UPS Trade Direct Ocean is a port-to-door and door-to-door delivery solution from ports in the U.S., Asia, Europe, and the Americas. This solution is designed for customers who want to simplify logistics management, reduce costs, and minimize the risk of loss or product damage. By leveraging the breadth and reliability of the UPS global network, UPS Trade Direct Ocean can remove days from your supply chain, delivering goods from overseas directly to your customers' locations.
Based on purchase order allocation and distribution information, your packages can be labeled and inserted directly into the UPS package delivery network following arrival and customs clearance in the destination country. Larger deliveries move by less-than-truckload (LTL) service. This combination of services enables us to extend your order fulfillment opportunities and improve your tracking capabilities, making it faster and less expensive for you to do business overseas.
