UPS Philippines relocates to a larger facility
With this move, UPS will be better equipped to meet the increasing demands of companies eager to take advantage of cross-border growth opportunities for faster and more dependable international shipping services.
Inside the boundaries of Mactan-Cebu International Airport, the new Cebu Center facility offers UPS direct access to the airport’s cargo terminal as well as a bigger staging area that enables quicker package processing.
Because of this, UPS customers in the area of Lapu-Lapu City now have more flexibility and a longer window of time to combine their export packages to leave on the same day. Customers can also get their items up to an hour earlier when UPS Global Express Saver shipments are made from key cities across the world.
Using the company’s extensive worldwide transportation network, UPS will continue to run five weekly flights to connect businesses in Cebu with over 220 countries and territories.
“With a strong manufacturing sector and as one of the fastest growing e-commerce markets in Asia, we see plenty of opportunities for businesses in the Philippines to participate in regional as well as global trade and UPS is here to support their cross-border growth,” said Russell Reed, managing director of UPS Philippines and Thailand.
“Moving the UPS Cebu Center nearer to the airport and our customers allows us to better serve small and large businesses located in the wider Visayas center of commerce, who now have faster, more reliable, and more flexible access to their clients both regionally and internationally.” He added.
Reed also added that as a global trade enabler, they’re always looking for ways to make supply chains more efficient and resilient, to enable their customers to achieve their growth ambitions.
UPS’s international time-definite shipments are handled at the UPS Cebu Center in Lapu-Lapu City, which is open from Monday to Saturday from 8:0AM to 6:00 PM During business hours, it also provides clients with a convenient place to drop off and pick up their items.
