UPS provides more certainty for small business owners

Ahead of peak season, UPS has introduced announced UPS Simple Rate, a predictable flat rate shipping option designed to help small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) streamline and simplify their outbound processes.

“UPS responds to our customers’ need for more convenience, choice and control,”said Kevin Warren, chief marketing officer at UPS. “Simple Rate helps small businesses take the guesswork out of shipping by providing simple, fast and transparent flat rates nationwide with guaranteed on-time delivery and no special packaging required.”

UPS Simple Rate enables SMBs to ship by UPS 2nd Day Air, UPS 3 Day Select and UPS Ground services to anywhere in the U.S. for a flat rate.  It offers larger size options than what is in the marketplace today and customers do not need to enter package weight and dimensions or look up shipping zones when using UPS Simple Rate.  SMBs can accurately predict their shipping costs and bill their customers without incurring unexpected fees.

With UPS Simple Rate, SMBs and consumers can also use their own boxes and packaging sized to fit their products and enhance the brand experience. Shippers needing greater flexibility in box sizes and options can buy boxes at The UPS Store® locations or other retail outlets. UPS Customer Technology Program (CTP) customers can order UPS Simple Rate branded boxes2 through the CTP program site.
