Distribution
Efficient Supply Chain

Wherever your goods need to be moved or stored, UPS can develop the most efficient and effective way to meet your requirements. You can benefit from our established network of facilities, IT systems, and logistics experts to penetrate and expand to new markets.

Leveraging our global network can remove roadblocks to new markets, whether they are local or international. We'll help you realize market opportunity without significant capital investment. And you can compete faster and with greater flexibility. You can grow--or even scale back--according to business conditions.

Our broad portfolio provides optimized and streamlined supply chain services, so you can focus on your core capabilities and your customers. Our end-to-end distribution services include everything from inbound material flow to finished goods warehousing, inventory management, inspections, returns handling, and global delivery. It's the full support you need to get the right products to the right places, on time and in excellent condition.

Best of all, while we speed your inventory through the supply chain, you'll have more time to map out your company's next move.

Advantages

Whether you’re part of a global conglomerate or a small but growing business, our distribution solutions can help to yield critical business benefits that crystallize throughout your company — on P&L statements, in customer satisfaction surveys, and in the ability to win the kind of business you weren’t able to service in the past.

You’ll conserve capital.
Why invest in infrastructure that has nothing to do with manufacturing or marketing your products? Take advantage of our established network of facilities, IT systems, and logistics experts to gain cost and service advantages. And count on our vendor-managed inventory model to improve the timing of inbound shipments, streamline stock, perfect replenishment schedules, and help to reduce carrying costs — no matter how many suppliers and end points are involved.

You’ll be better positioned to serve customers.
We maintain over 35 million square feet of distribution and warehousing facilities, strategically located at approximately 1,000 sites in more than 120 countries. This allows you to strategically position your product close to your customers, which helps speed transit and lower overall transportation costs. You’ll get the right amount of product to the right places at the right time to meet demand.

You’ll be able to plan with precision.
Our advanced IT systems provide reports and data to help optimize business planning and decisions. Have a look at inventory, orders, and shipments. Gauge product velocity. Gain more visibility into the entire distribution network — and get a better sense of direction than ever before.
