The technology upgrade for critical healthcare shipments

Priority Handling

Now small packages can get "white glove" services normally reserved for specialty freight. Thanks to our sensor labeling system, your package will get priority handling at every node in the network as well as preferred delivery services and proactive alerts.

Enhanced Sensor-Based Visibility

Advanced RFID, mesh, or cellular sensor technology built into to our highly visible labeling system allow you to tailor your level of visibility services for the needs of each shipment.

Live 24/7 Monitoring

Live agents at our Command Center provide 24/7 monitoring and intervention services for your most critical shipments when you choose UPS Premier.

Advanced Recovery

Pre-configured handling instructions allow the UPS team to effectively locate your package and quickly take action on distressed shipments within the network, mitigating risk for even your most fragile payloads. We also offer insurance options to limit financial exposure.

Seamless Imports & Exports

When coupled with global brokerage capabilities, UPS Premier shipments move on a priority fast-lane across borders avoiding risk and potential delay.
