UPS grows ALD offerings with Taiwan ‘e-lockers’
After adding more e-lockers to its alternate delivery locations (ALDs) in Hong Kong in June, UPS is expanding its ALD offerings in Taiwan. UPS is expanding delivery options for e-commerce shipments in Taiwan with the addition of more than 850 ‘e-lockers’ as alternate delivery locations (ALDs). UPS is working with Palmbox and Chunghwa Post, via its iBox lockers, for e-commerce deliveries in Taiwan. Once Taiwanese customers receive deliveries from international retailers at an e-locker, UPS will notify the customers, allowing them to retrieve the delivery from Palmbox and iBox lockers located in supermarkets, apartment complexes and certain post office locations. Customers will also be able to use credit cards at selected e-lockers to pay import duties and taxes. “UPS’s latest enhancements help retailers to meet these needs, and place them in a strong position,” according to KK Leung, President of North Asia district, UPS Asia Pacific Region.
