UPS opens new shipping centres in Mexico
UPS expects to have more than 110 customer shipping centres across the country by the end of 2017.
As part of its small business strategy, UPS announced its plans to double the amount of UPS shipping centres across Mexico. The UPS centres have trained personnel to help small and medium-sized business owners (SMEs) with their domestic and international shipping.
Onsite experts will assist consumers and SMEs with proper packaging techniques and completing customs documentation. SMEs in the retail and manufacturing sectors will find the online tools that track packages in real time beneficial.
“Our expansion plan will strengthen UPS’s presence in Mexico to be closer to our customers,” said Agustin Picado, president for UPS Mexico. “With these new UPS centres, we’ll help our customers improve their bottom line and provide better access to a full portfolio of solutions.”
UPS expects to have more than 110 customer shipping centres by the end of 2017. Mexico already has a network of more than 600 retail locations throughout the country. These locations offer convenient package pickup and drop off at local businesses, such as neighbourhood grocery stores, dry cleaners and cafes with extended evening and weekend hours.
UPS centers will be open Monday to Friday 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., and Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Customers can locate their nearest UPS customer counter using the geo-location search option available on ups.com.
