UPS Supply Chain Solutions®
Supplier Management

Doing business with suppliers in other countries can open up possibilities -- and create challenges.

Managing vendors and orders can be a daunting task when you factor in varying languages, cultures, time zones and distance. Our Supplier Management service can provide you the critical components to enable successful international commerce. Acting as your eyes and ears around the world, we bridge time zones, cultures, distance and languages to help create a seamless supply chain. We leverage our international infrastructure, systems and experience on your behalf to proactively manage your overseas suppliers to help bring order, control, and reliability to international supply chains.

Now you can have the vital order, item and vendor fulfillment information you need -- long before your order is scheduled to ship. By having information earlier in the fulfillment process, you can gain more control and lower your costs. Using your standard operating procedures, and purchase order details, along with our state-of-the-art ”cloud based” technology platform, UPS Order Watch®, we can monitor critical data and events, and communicate any deviations from plan. Information is available to you online, so you can access data when you need it and more efficiently collaborate with your suppliers and service providers.

Our standard services include:

Vendor Compliance and Order Management
We manage your supplier, item, order and shipment details to help ensure what you order is what you receive.

Global Information Management
We can track events and milestones, report progress and exceptions, and alert you when action is required while providing detailed in-transit inventory visibility to the purchase order, item, size, color, and/or quantity level.

Global Distribution Management
Our comprehensive portfolio of services includes consolidation, pick and pack, pre-distribution, warehousing, distribution center by-pass, customs clearance and even integrated solutions for end-to-end handling.

Order Compliance Management
We manage and monitor your documents to ensure accuracy in comparison with your purchase order, and to track your customs clearance progress.

Transportation Management
We manage local and international transportation so we can assist in enabling your products to be delivered at the right time, to the right place, in the right way. You can leverage UPS’s global network and proven experience to meet your transportation management and freight shipping needs.

With our enhanced Supplier Management service, enabled by UPS Order Watch®, you can manage international suppliers with more accountability and better control, regardless of the time and distance between you. With UPS you can explore new options and expand your purchasing possibilities with more control and reliability which can help increase sales and/or lower overall landed cost. .
