Technology Takes Off at UPS to Simplify International Shipping

"Businesses of all sizes count on UPS to bridge the distance between their suppliers and their customers," said Dan Brutto, president of UPS International.  "Technology is the key to helping shippers, particularly exporters and importers, streamline their global supply chains."

The technology enhancements, announced today at the American Association of Exporters and Importers 89th Annual Conference & Expo, include:
  • Importers will have more control and fewer delays of their shipments with UPS Import Control, a new functionality that enables an importer to process an import shipment through their UPS shipping system, specifically CampusShip or Internet Shipping on ups.com.
  • CampusShip will join UPS shipping systems, WorldShip, and Internet Shipping, in processing air freight shipments in addition to less-than-truckload (LTL) freight shipments, providing the same easy-to-use interface for both small package and LTL freight shippers.
  • Quantum View Manage, a web-based tool, will provide enhanced support for shipper visibility into air, ocean and LTL freight shipments.
  • ups.com will provide self-enrollment in UPS Paperless Invoice, which allows small package shipments to clear customs in 92 countries using electronic data instead of error-prone paper forms known as commercial invoices.
