UPS launches new labelling system to speed up shipments

UPS has added a new labelling system to help speed up air and ocean shipments by bypassing distribution centers.
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.
“Origin labeling provides greater flexibility to both importers and exporters,” said Keith Andrey, global freight forwarding vice president of air and ocean products.
“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.
