UPS has inaugurated a larger integrated logistics facility in Ahmedabad to support businesses and SMEs (small and medium enterprises) in Gujarat, looking to expand trade with the global marketplace. Located at Ahmedabad, the facility is easily accessible for walk-in retail customers. The company will provide integrated services for small packages, supply chain solutions and contract logistics for faster and more efficient access to international markets. UPS also offers SMEs in Ahmedabad same day clearance to the United States.
The new facility is part of UPS’s investment strategy into its global integrated network, which moves three per cent of the world gross domestic product (GDP) across 220 countries and territories daily.
Jean-Francois Condamine, President – Indian subcontinent, Middle East and Africa (ISMEA), UPS, commented, “The economic growth of around 7.1 per cent puts India at the top of the fastest growing G20 economies. Gujarat contributes to a quarter of India’s goods exports and has successfully developed a world class infrastructure network. With the Indian economy on a growth trajectory, SMEs in key states such as Gujarat, are breaking boundaries to reach their growth potential. This investment shows UPS’s commitment as a growth partner for India and its businesses to help drive the economy.”
