UPS enhances its service between Singapore and growing markets in the Middle East, United States and Europe.
UPS is launching a new "around the world" flight this summer to further enhance its service between Singapore and growing markets in the Middle East, United States and Europe.
The logistics company is planning to operate an additional five flights each week, starting next month, which will connect various destinations around the world. The route will be served using an MD-11 aircraft, starting from the UPS European hub in Germany, travelling to Dubai, Bangkok, Singapore and Mumbai.
"Singapore continues to be an important market for UPS in Asia and we are constantly looking at ways to expand our service for customers, whether they require express, airfreight, ocean freight or distribution and logistics options," said Alan Gershenhorn, president of UPS International.
"In a century of service, UPS has evolved from a small messenger business to become a trusted partner for companies doing business around the world and we remain committed to helping our customers efficiently manage their complex global supply chains," he added.
The latest flight will be supported by the new UPS distribution and logistics centre at the Airport Logistics Park of Singapore (ALPS). Measuring 425,000 square feet, the facility is one of UPS's key operations centres in the region and provides air and ocean freight, as well as logistics and specialty services such as critical parts distribution, final kitting of products before distribution, returns and repair and warranty management.
