UPS leverages new hub to enhance service in Asia

One year after opening an ultra-modern air hub in Shenzhen, UPS has announced the completion of a series of air lane enhancements that have dramatically improved service for customers throughout Asia.

All told, the company has completed improvements to more than 100 intra-Asia lane pairs since it opened the Shenzhen hub in May last year. The enhancements include faster transit times on key lanes between India and the rest of Asia and between South Korea and other Asian destinations.

Next month, UPS will launch a direct weekly B747-400F flight from Guam to Hong Kong, which in turn connects that US territory to the rest of the world.

"The Shenzhen Asia Pacific hub has enabled us to strengthen our entire intra-Asia network," said Derek Woodward, president of UPS’s Asia-Pacific region. "Since we relocated our intra-Asia hub to Shenzhen, we have operated more than 5,000 flights to and from this hub. We also have added significant capacity and service improvements to meet the growing needs of businesses to move intra-Asia express and freight volume. And we’re not done yet."

During its first year of operation, the Shenzhen hub enabled multiple service enhancements for Asia-Pacific customers, including:

  • For Beijing customers – improved transit times and later cut-off times to cities like Hong Kong, Singapore, Sydney, Taipei, Tokyo & Osaka.
  • Reduced transit times from the key Indian cities of New Delhi, Mumbai and Bangalore to destinations like Australia, China, Hong Kong, Korea, Singapore and Vietnam.
  • Later cut-off times for shipments from Seoul to major cities like Guangzhou, Hong Kong, Mumbai, Singapore and Tokyo.
The addition of Guam to the UPS Asia-Pacific portfolio is the latest step in the company’s aggressive expansion in that part of the world, which has included the addition of new direct flights between Hong Kong and Cologne (Germany), as well as frequencies into Incheon (South Korea) and Tokyo’s Narita International Airport.
