April 11, 2018: UPS has inaugurated a larger integrated logistics facility in Ahmedabad to support businesses and SMEs (small and medium enterprises) which are looking to expand trade with the global marketplace. UPS is the only logistics company to provide a 48 hour delivery timeline to United States and Europe for SMEs in Gujarat thereby enhancing their speed to market.
Located at Ahmedabad, the facility is easily accessible for walk-in retail customers. UPS will provide integrated services for small package, supply chain solutions and contract logistics for faster and more efficient access to international markets. UPS also offers SMEs in Ahmedabad same day clearance to the United States.
The new facility is part of UPS’s investment strategy into its global integrated network. The logistic player said that it has continued to invest in capacity and technologies to build the smart global logistics network which services increasing international trade demands. Ahmedabad is the latest part of this constantly evolving network.
“The economic growth of around 7.1 percent puts India at the top of the fastest growing G20 economies. Gujarat contributes to a quarter of India’s goods exports and has successfully developed a world class infrastructure network. With the Indian economy on a growth trajectory, SMEs in key states such as Gujarat, are breaking boundaries to reach their growth potential. This investment shows UPS’s commitment as a growth partner for India and its businesses to help drive the economy,” said Jean-Francois Condamine, UPS President for Indian subcontinent, Middle East and Africa (ISMEA).
Meanwhile, Rachid Fergati, managing director, Indian subcontinent for UPS said, “Gujarat is a key market for textiles, industrial manufacturing, pharmaceutical manufacturing and allied industry segments that need logistics partners to create supply chain efficiencies. UPS is an enabler of global trade and is well positioned at the intersection of connectivity, technology and efficiency to provide a smart business network to realize that goal for businesses in Gujarat.”
“Also, the consolidation of the three key services of small package, supply chain solutions and logistics, backed by UPS’s advanced technology solutions, will help accelerate time to market, reduce costs, and improve efficiency for businesses here” he added.
