The UPS Trade Direct Solution allows importers and manufacturers to bypass distribution centers by adding the final destination label to individual packages for immediate last mile delivery.Labeling at origin reduces transit time by roughly one day and allows customers to use in-transit goods as a ‘floating warehouse’ during transoceanic voyages.
This service is initially available on select Asia to US trade lanes. Further capability expansion will be rolled out in the near future according to market demand.
