    UPS® (NYSE:UPS) today announced service enhancements in central and southern areas of Changhua County, designed to help importers and exporters better connect to a global marketplace.

    “The rise in demand for the Internet of Things (IoT), smart devices and drones have significantly contributed to the US$335.2 billion semiconductor industry in 2015². As a major contributor to the global semiconductor manufacturing market, Taiwan stands to benefit from the industry growth that is forecasted to reach almost US$564 billion by the end of 2019³,” said Wayne Pi, Managing Director of UPS Taiwan. “Focusing on operational optimization will help Taiwanese businesses overcome the challenges of today. With UPS’s latest service enhancements, customers benefit from improved connectivity and greater flexibility, which³ are critical for success.”

    Supply chain complexities have only emphasized the importance for companies to innovate and transform to adapt to economic volatility, technology disruptions to business models and greater regional competition stemming from manufacturing shifts. UPS’s global footprint and customs brokerage expertise enable seamless supply chain integration for companies looking to actively participate in global value chains and engage in cross-border trade more efficiently. The flexibility and convenience of twice a day pickups will equip Taiwanese businesses to tackle the demands of customers, while continuing to improve service levels.

    Latest enhancements in the Philippines, South Korea and Taiwan are part of UPS’s strategy in the region to improve the competitive advantage for Asian customers, help them capitalize on opportunities in emerging markets and ensure that they are able to balance rising costs. The company also recently expanded their UPS Worldwide Express™ portfolio that impacted an additional 13 markets in Asia Pacific, including Taiwan. The UPS Worldwide Express service gives customers – especially those with time-sensitive shipments – the guaranteed time-of-day deliveries they need to thrive as international trade continues to grow.

    “Over the last 18 months, UPS expanded our service coverage and portfolio in 35 markets across five countries and territories in the region, to reliably connect Asian businesses of all sizes to the world. Through UPS, Asia is staying open for business with the world – an additional 122 million potential customers can now reach markets never available to them before,” said Ross McCullough, President of UPS Asia Pacific. “We will continue implementing strategies that enable strong growth for our customers and company.”
