"Supplier Diversity at UPS involves working to ensure that small and diverse businesses have equal footing in the competitive bidding process. Contracts are not awarded based on size or diversity, but we know that working to ensure small businesses and diverse companies have opportunities to bid on contracts, makes UPS stronger. Their solutions provide tremendous value to our customers and shareowners."

This is a business strategy that encourages our supply chain to reflect the diversity of the communities we serve.
We help ensure that qualified small businesses and diverse firms have the resources and access they need to successfully compete for our business.
By working with suppliers who reflect the markets we serve, we see a wealth of benefits: it helps build customer loyalty, contributes to economic development of communities, and provides the expertise and innovation we need to outperform the competition. That is why we are committed to building a diverse and inclusive supply chain.
