Fondata nel 1907, UPS è la più grande società di consegna del pacchetto al mondo e un fornitore leader mondiale di servizi di trasporto e logistica specializzati. L'UPS offre un potente vantaggio competitivo che può aiutare a guadagnare i clienti di ripetizione e sviluppare la tua attività commerciale.
Con più di cento anni di storia, soprannominata “the big brown”, con una flotta di 300 aerei, 100.000 automezzi, 2.000 facility in tutto il mondo, aereoporti dedicati, operante in oltre 220 paesi e territori e con 4,5 miliardi di pacchi consegnati ogni anno, Ups è sicuramente uno degli attori principali sulla scena mondiale per ciò che riguarda la consegna B to B e B to C con una fortissima vocazione al trasporto espresso internazionale e alla logistica.
Compagnia statunitense fondata a Seattle da James E.Casey nel 1907 con 100 dollari chiesti in prestito, denominata inizialmente come “American Messenger Company” poi “Merchants Parcel Delivery” ed infine l’attuale denominazione “United Parcel Service”; ha basato gran parte della sua forza sulla tecnologia avanzata per il settore trasporti e sul continuo sviluppo e miglioramento di quest’ultima ed è divenuto uno dei corrieri espressi più veloci e affidabili del pianeta.
Gestita ai suoi esordi dallo stesso Casey e da un socio in un seminterrato, le consegne venivano effettuate a piedi o in bicicletta e la prima autovettura per il trasporto dei pacchi fù acquistata solo nel 1913.
Nel 2001 UPS ha acquisito il marchio “Mail Boxes etc.”, network mondiale in franchising per servizi di spedizione, entrando di fatto nel settore del commercio al dettaglio; attualmente negli Stati Uniti questi centri hanno cambiato il loro marchio e si chiamano “UPS store”.
Oggi l’azienda che è quotata in borsa a New York, con 450.000 dipendenti in tutto il mondo e l'inconfondibile livrea marrone che caratterizza tutti i suoi automezzi; continua ad essere il vettore più affidabile e all’avanguardia per quel che riguarda l’offerta di servizi di spedizione e logistica connessi al commercio internazionale.
