Deliver Shopper Satisfaction

UPS for retail and e-commerce. With the global marketplace only a click away, it’s crucial to keep shoppers coming back—both in store and online. To help you meet this demand, we’re developing solutions that enhance the relationship between retailers and consumers. We apply our expertise to help you create a more agile, more responsive supply chain. So when your shoppers are happy, so are you.

See how we partnered with custom shirt and suit maker J.Hilburn to give shoppers a tailored retail experience.

When you look at what we’re doing, whether we’re moving fabric from Italy, moving it to my custom-make shops, or bringing my product to the United States, that’s all UPS.

Take a Healthy Approach

UPS for healthcare. At the end of every logistics healthcare supply chain is a mom. A grandfather. A newborn child. These people are the reasons our global team of healthcare experts is hard at work every day—collaborating on cutting-edge ways to help you deliver lifesaving medicines, devices, and supplies. Because, at the end of the day, improving healthcare supply chain efficiency means improving the most important outcome of all: a patient’s care.

Watch how we helped EndoChoice make significant improvements in its healthcare supply chain.

Key Takeaways
  • EndoChoice needed a partner to help them bring a transformative new technology to market—fast.
  • Our experts examined the logistics of their entire healthcare supply chain, and helped them find efficiencies to streamline their process.
  • With the help of UPS, EndoChoice went from starting in a basement in 2008 to a $50 million company by 2013.

After we started implementing the UPS suggestions, the results were immediate… we found an additional $70,000 in cost-of-goods improvements. That’s another employee we can hire.
