UPS has relocated its service centre in Korea from Dangsan-dong to Docksan-dong with expanded capacity and enhanced services for customers.

The integrator says with the opening of the new centre, customers will benefit from later cut-off times for shipment pick-up, providing greater flexibility for businesses to process late shipments.

The new larger space of more than 10,000 square feet it says will significantly increase UPS’s capacity to handle greater volume.

UPS says businesses in Geumcheon and Gwang-myeong areas can now process more orders within a day with extended cut-off times for shipment pick-up by up to almost four hours, while the close proximity to the Gasan Digital Complex in the Geumcheon district allows UPS to support growing small and middle market Korean business located in the thriving industrial complex.

UPS Korea managing director, JK Rha says: “The new centre is a reinforcement of our commitment to bring added value to Korean businesses by providing greater convenience, increased efficiencies and flexibilities to their supply chains, allowing them to move their products to market and end-consumers more quickly.”

He adds: “It is also a continuation of UPS’s strategy of steady expansion and growth in Korea. Last year, we improved our services in 13 cities, offering competitive cut-off times for shipment pick-ups and quicker time-in-transit from selected cities to major US, European and Asian cities.

“Our strong network and access to a portfolio of solutions tailored for key growth industries such as the industrial manufacturing and automotive sectors help our customers to remain globally competitive, as global supply chains become increasingly complex.”
