UPS partners with First Flight Couriers to expand footprint in India
Jan 05, 2016: UPS announced that First Flight Courier (FFCL), a leading Indian domestic courier company, will become a UPS authorised shipping outlet in India. This agreement will expand the reach of UPS’s international express delivery service through FFCL’s network in metropolitan and urban centres across India.
With FFCL becoming a UPS Authorised Shipping Outlet, Indian customers will be able to book international shipments with FFCL, who will in turn make use of UPS’s global shipping network. This service expansion will support market growth by helping clients connect more quickly to global markets.
UPS is the largest package delivery company in the world, in terms of both revenue and volume. Through an integrated supply chain and worldwide network serving over 220 countries and territories, UPS oversees the successful daily delivery of about 18 million packages and documents.
“Demand for international express delivery service is on an upswing in India, with increasing penetration in cities and towns,” said Mark Martyn-Fisher, managing director, UPS India.
“First Flight Couriers is a valuable ally and puts us in a strong position to support retail customers with their growing export-oriented requirements. We are glad to add First Flight Couriers to our team of global shipping partners who share our professional values and are proven to make the best use of innovative technologies to optimise trade between India and the rest of the world.”
O P Saboo, chairman and managing director, First Flight Couriers, said, “Working with UPS will help us raise the bar of our service capabilities and offer our customers international reach. The combination of our respective networks, process know-how and operations expertise will allow us to offer an unprecedented level of convenience to our retail and enterprise customers.”
The region comprising over 70 countries that covers the Indian subcontinent, the Middle East and Africa is UPS’s largest region in terms of geographic area and forms a key part of the UPS global network. UPS began its services in India in 1988 and has since grown to become a convenient resource to India’s businesses for their express delivery services.
With about 435,000 employees worldwide, UPS delivers to over 8 million customers each day and handles about 2 percent of global GDP in its network.
