People + Processes = Performance

How Do Logistics Services Work?

Processes

UPDS has been smoothing out supply chains for decades, so we’ve established proven operating processes that improve the way products are shipped.

We’ve also developed in-house technology that’s different than a typical tracking system. Where many track and trace systems report inaccurate data, ours scrubs that data first, so it is always reliable.

We then take that validated data and report it back to you through an easy-to-use system. Our very own ShipmentVision technology provides user-friendly dashboards and reports that make it easy for you to track every step of your shipment. That means no matter how many stops your product makes between origin and destination, you’ll have total visibility all along the way.

People

Having reliable data is a huge benefit — but having people to proactively manage delivery of your products takes your benefits to the next level.

When you work with UPDS for logistics management, you’ll get an expert dedicated to your account. We’ll coordinate between carriers and across modes, provide constant and vigilant monitoring of your fleet, escalate issues in a timely manner, and solve problems before they arise. We’ll take a magnifying glass to your shipments to fill in all the cracks and smooth out all the wrinkles. We do the heavy lifting so you don’t have to.
