written by Newsdesk | April 8, 2024

UPS (NYSE: UPS) has introduced a new flight connecting its intra-Asia hub in Shenzhen (SZX) to Sydney Kingsford Smith Airport (SYD), enabling faster delivery times between leading Asia Pacific economies and Australia, according to a press release issued on April 8, 2024.

The new service allows shipments picked up from customers in mainland China, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam, Indonesia, and Hong Kong to be delivered to Australia as early as the next business day.

Similarly, UPS customers in Australia can now have their deliveries across Asia Pacific and even to Europe completed as early as the next business day.

Wilfredo Ramos, president of UPS Asia Pacific, said, “From both the import and export perspective, most of Australia’s top trading partners are in Asia Pacific, so we’re delighted to be able to offer our customers faster delivery times across the region.”

He added, “Faster delivery can make all the difference for businesses looking for a competitive edge. With growth expected in industries such as high tech, manufacturing and healthcare over the next few years, we’re the logistics partner businesses can rely on to help them capitalize on this.”

This latest enhancement is part of a series of recent network and facility improvements UPS has made across Asia Pacific, including in Singapore, Japan, mainland China, Vietnam, South Korea, Hong Kong, and the Philippines, as the company continues to invest significantly in the region to strengthen its integrated express, supply chain, and healthcare logistics services.

The improved delivery times to Australia from the aforementioned Asia Pacific markets apply to shipments picked up from Wednesday to Friday starting April 3, 2024, and include all states except Western Australia.


Next business day delivery from Australia to select destinations in Asia Pacific and Europe applies to shipments picked up on Fridays starting April 5, 2024, and includes all states except Western Australia.
