With ever-faster product obsolescence, there’s a much tighter window to get high-tech goods to market. That's why high-tech companies demand high-speed logistics. We provide sophisticated support for specialized, complicated supply chains. Because in your business, nobody remembers who got to market second.
In addition to the need for speed, moving high-value goods comes with other concerns, like effectively managing inventory and maintaining tight security. That’s where our experience with other high-tech companies can help provide yours with high-confidence solutions. From pre-manufacturing to post-sales support, with a full suite of transportation, logistics and international trade services, we’ll work closely with you to help improve speed, tighten efficiency and add value. So you can turn your high-tech supply chain into a high-tech competitive game-changer.
We go the extra mile with unique value-added services. Things like component kit-building, configuring barcode labels for kits, kit disassembly and distributed order management help make your job easier. Trust us to also handle things like in-house inspections and refurbishment, edging and decal services.
We'll work with you to develop the right packaging solution to meet your unique business situation. Branded, environmentally conscious, temperature-sensitive and optimized corrugation packaging is available. Store-ready product displays are also available. And we can help with innovative damage protection through our Packaging Innovation Center.
In high tech manufacturing and distribution, today's headliner products can quickly become yesterday's news. So getting your new product launched fast and efficiently is critical. So is maintaining a well-oiled, end-to-end supply chain that can keep up with everything from peak season demands and ever-shifting consumer buying patterns.
Our postponement services include hardware and device configuration, software installation, light assembly of finished goods, literature add-ins and the addition of documentation and labels. You can store basic goods for longer periods of time to exploit unique market conditions, reduce lead times and reduce inventory levels. All of which can improve productivity and profitability.
Thriving in today's global economy means being in the right place at the right time to optimize speed to market. Multi-channel selling can require dealing with varying customs requirements for sourcing and distribution, regional fulfilment, reclaims, repairs and replacements. You could build it all yourself, or you could mobilize our global network of facilities, carriers, technology and experts to help you get it done.
Your customers have high expectations for the services you provide, even after the sale. Our portfolio of reverse management solutions can help you make returns and repairs easy for customers, while giving you a tighter grip on inventory. These flexible, cost-effective offerings can quickly return parts, even leveraging the UPS Access Point® network for easy pickup and drop off.
Our test, repair and refurbish services can screen and diagnose critical parts—or whole units—to determine viability and assess whether they should be returned to inventory or recycled. Our broad network of field stocking locations, coupled with the UPS Access Point® network, helps you deliver parts to the best locations for your field technicians. Your techs can be more efficient and SLA-compliance is improved.
As your global supply chain grows, so do the complexities you face managing risk and cost. If you import lots of inventory into the U.S., it's likely some of the goods stay here, while others get exported later. So you get hit with duties, import taxes and fees in multiple countries. That can kill your bottom line and slow growth. An FTZ can put a lot of those duties and taxes back in your pocket.
