UPS Launches Logistics Facility in India

Atlanta-based UPS, the world’s largest package delivery company and a provider of supply chain management solutions, launched its new integrated logistics facility in Hyderabad, India. “India is one of the fastest growing G20 economies and Hyderabad is fast becoming a ground for implementation of the `Make in India’ initiative, said Jean-Francois Condamine, president, Indian Subcontinent, Middle East and Africa.

Spread over nearly 4,000 square feet, the facility will provide integrated services — small package, supply chain solutions, and contract logistics — to help businesses gain faster and more efficient access to international markets, reports the Times of India.

Rachid Fergati, managing director, Indian Subcontinent, UPS said that sectors such as healthcare, aerospace and manufacturing in the southern state of Telangana, “need logistics partners to create supply chain efficiencies, which is one of UPS’s key focus areas in India. The consolidation of the three key services, backed by UPS’s advanced technology, will help reduce costs, improve efficiency and increase competitiveness for businesses in Hyderabad.”
