UPS opens in­te­grated fa­cil­ity in Hyd

UPS’ state-of-the-art fa­cil­ity in Hy­der­abad aims to fa­cil­i­tate in­ter­na­tional trade for In­dian busi­ness as the In­dian eco­nomic growth of around seven-and-a-half per cent puts In­dia at the top of the fastest grow­ing G20 economies.

UPS has in­au­gu­rated a fa­cil­ity at Hy­der­abad to sup­port lo­cal busi­ness and SMEs (small and medium en­ter­prises) look­ing to ex­pand trade with the global mar­ket­place. Lo­cated at Begum­pet, the fa­cil­ity is eas­ily ac­ces­si­ble for walk-in re­tail cus­tomers. UPS will pro­vide in­te­grated ser­vices for small pack­age, sup­ply chain so­lu­tions and con­tract lo­gis­tics for faster and more ef­fi­cient ac­cess to in­ter­na­tional mar­kets.

The new fa­cil­ity is part of the con­tin­u­ous in­vest­ment into UPS’s global in­te­grated net­work which moves 3 per cent of the world gross do­mes­tic prod­uct (GDP) across 220 coun­tries and ter­ri­to­ries daily. SMEs are a vi­tal en­gine for eco­nomic growth and con­trib­u­tors to In­dia’s GDP. Mi­cro, Small and Medium En­ter­prises (MSMEs) con­trib­ute around 6 per cent of the man­u­fac­tur­ing GDP, 25 per cent of the GDP from ser­vices, and 33 per cent of In­dia's man­u­fac­tur­ing out­put. Lo­gis­tics play an in­creas­ingly key role for busi­ness seek­ing com­pet­i­tive ad­van­tages and trad­ing across bor­ders. With over a cen­tury of ex­pe­ri­ence, UPS con­tin­ues to in­vest in ca­pac­ity and tech­nolo­gies to build the Smart Lo­gis­tics Net­work of the fu­ture. Hy­der­abad is the lat­est part of this con­stantly evolv­ing net­work.

“UPS con­sid­ers global trade a great op­por­tu­nity for eco­nomic growth and we help In­dian busi­ness of all sizes, es­pe­cially SMEs, take ad­van­tage of the global mar­ket­place,” said Jean-Fran­cois Con­damine, Pres­i­dent for In­dian sub­con­ti­nent, Mid­dle East and Africa (ISMEA), UPS.

“The eco­nomic growth of around seven-and-a-half per cent puts In­dia at the top of the fastest grow­ing G20 economies. Hy­der­abad is fast be­com­ing a ground for im­ple­men­ta­tion of the ‘Make in In­dia’ ini­tia­tive. With the In­dian econ­omy on a growth tra­jec­tory, In­dian SMEs are break­ing bound­aries to reach their growth po­ten­tial. This in­vest­ment shows UPS’s com­mit­ment as a growth part­ner for the coun­try and its busi­ness help­ing to drive the econ­omy,” Con­damine said.

Rachid Fer­gati, Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor In­dian sub­con­ti­nent, UPS added, “Hy­der­abad is a key mar­ket for in­dus­tries such as health­care, in­for­ma­tion tech­nol­ogy and man­u­fac­tur­ing among oth­ers. Busi­ness in these sec­tors need lo­gis­tics part­ners to cre­ate sup­ply chain ef­fi­cien­cies and that is one of UPS’s key fo­cus ar­eas in In­dia. The con­sol­i­da­tion of the three key ser­vices of small pack­age, sup­ply chain so­lu­tions and lo­gis­tics, backed by UPS’s ad­vanced tech­nol­ogy, will help re­duce costs, im­prove ef­fi­ciency and in­crease com­pet­i­tive­ness for busi­nesses in Hy­der­abad.” UPS con­nects ma­jor In­dian ci­ties such as Mum­bai, Delhi, Chennai, Ban­ga­lore, Hy­der­abad, Kolkata, Pune, Chandi­garh, Lud­hi­ana as well as emerg­ing ex­port lo­ca­tions Jam­na­gar, Kan­pur, Indore, Karur, Mo­rad­abad, Tirupur, Coim­bat­ore, Baroda and Bhadohi to in­ter­na­tional mar­ket­places.
