Supplier Management

Put us to work for you.

Now there’s a better way. UPS Supplier Management is a single-source solution without the single-carrier constraints. It’s an origin cargo management (OCM) resource that provides a team of people and tools to manage all those shipments, vendors, POs and processes. Our collaborative system collects data from vendors, carriers, UPS and the customer, creating a sophisticated control tower that provides PO and shipment data when you need it. You can become more efficient, your shipments more optimized and your supply chain more reliable.
