As the deadline looms for small- and medium-sized businesses to capture as much business as possible during the holiday season, UPS has introduced a promotion for significant savings on shipping within the U.S. and for packages going to consumers worldwide.
UPS communicated at a recent investor conference a strengthened focus on expanding relationships with SMBs through customized service offerings, more tailored digital connections and attractive pricing.
The company’s strong delivery network and expanded capacity is enabling broader discounts at this important time of the year. UPS is committed to generate a greater share of revenue from small to medium-sized online shippers.
Called the “EASY” promotion, the campaign is being expanded to more small and medium-sized business.
The promotion is valid to all U.S. shippers, including those in Alaska or Hawaii. (Note: Terms and Conditions Apply)
“These savings, together with our highly reliable network, which is performing at levels consistent with our non-peak, on-time performance, is a winning combination. The promotion is simple and easy to use, and has been well received by small- and medium-sized businesses.”
Kevin Warren, chief marketing officer, UPS
The savings range from 20% off list rates for UPS Ground shipments within the U.S. and up to 40% off UPS air services within the U.S. and selected worldwide services, including shipments to Canada and Mexico.
Both countries are large trading partners with the U.S. and are typically the first countries where small and medium-sized businesses expand their ecommerce sales.
Earlier UPS announced the company has achieved superior on-time delivery performance this holiday season through capacity expansion and new technology deployment.
UPS can deliver a large volume in a timely fashion thanks to greater collaboration with customers, improved network resource utilization, new automated capacity and the dedication of UPS employees around the world.
Besides offering incentives to businesses during the holidays, UPS is also offering consumers a rewards program for directing deliveries to nearly 9,000 pickup points, known as UPS Access Point® locations.
By using an alternative delivery location, consumers have the additional choice, control and convenience for package deliveries.
