    To drive growth, UPS looking at healthcare, contract logistics - Hindu Business Line

    United Parcel Service (UPS), the US-based global courier company, is looking at healthcare sector and contract logistics to drive growth in India.

    The company sees great potential for movement of critical medical parcels in and out of the country. This is a specialised segment and UPS has expertise in handling sensitive products, according to Mark Martyn-Fisher, Managing Director, UPS India.

    “As India is developing, there is a much higher demand for high-technology equipments to run specific services. It could be critical equipments like hospital or telecommunications equipment. So, there is a need to supply spares quickly to engineers who maintain such equipment,” Fisher said.
