UPS announces MiC 2.0 Report and service improvements in China

UPS has announced the release of the 2016 Made in China 2.0 (MiC 2.0) Report and the launch of service improvements in Beijing, Shanghai and Tianjin. Research for the Made in China 2.0 Report was conducted by Lightspeed GMI on behalf of UPS and Caixin Media. A total of 1,000 senior decision-makers in export manufacturing companies across China were interviewed. To qualify for the study, a respondent had to work for a company that exported at least 40% of the value of the goods it produced and have senior decision-making responsibilities within that company. Interviews were conducted in December 2015.

According to a statement issued by UPS on Wednesday (10 August), the responses from the respondents taking part in the Made in China 2.0 Report highlighted the importance of logistics and delivery infrastructure.

“MiC 2.0 Leaders understand that investing in logistics can add value to key business objectives. They are three times more likely to recognize that logistics can play a highly important role in reducing costs and growing sales, and two times more likely to enhance the customer experience,” said UPS.

“MiC 2.0 Leaders are significantly more likely than other export manufacturers to rate improving logistics (170%) and growing sales (168%) as highly important priorities for future success.”

Richard Loi, President of UPS China, commented: “As a global trade enabler and leader in integrated logistics solutions, UPS is well-positioned to help export manufacturers in China succeed and export globally. To this end, we are continually enhancing our service capabilities to provide strong support for businesses in China as they look toward global markets. This is why we are implementing service enhancements that include later pick-up time and faster time-in-transit in key cities such as Beijing, Shanghai and Tianjin.”

According to the UPS statement, customers in Beijing and Tianjin can now benefit from faster transit times up to 24 hours, and pick-up cut-off time extension up to 2.5 hours in Beijing and 3 hours in Tianjin. Customers in Shanghai can benefit from pick-up cut-off time extension up to 1.5 hours.

UPS has also been expanding its presence in second and third tier cities. In 2015, UPS expanded into 21 new cities as part of its long term growth strategy in China. These cities are primarily in the Jiangsu, Shandong, Zhejiang and Guangdong provinces and Chongqing Municipality.
