UPS CampusShip, a Web-based technology which makes it easier for employees in different locations to use a common package shipping system, is expanding its geographic reach to 18 additional countries, including Ireland. UK customers have been using the service with great success since its initial roll out in 2004.
The expansion brings the number of countries and territories in which business customers can use the technology to 42.
With UPS CampusShip, employees in satellite offices can easily process and prepare UPS package shipping labels from their own desk tops. Company decision makers can monitor the process with centralised control and visibility, allowing them to establish shipping guidelines and accurately track and allocate shipping costs by department or location.
UPS is committed to answering and anticipating customers needs, said Kathleen Marran, Products and Services director, UPS Europe. As our customers expand their operations across the world, we create new solutions for them. CampusShip, with its broad global reach, allows them to easily standardise and centralise shipping options for their entire enterprise.
Debeka Insurance of Germany made the switch to UPS CampusShip in February 2005. With multiple branches around the country, a multitude of billing types and varied use of service levels, Debeka welcomed the opportunity to exert centralised control over its shipping. Debeka began using CampusShip in one branch office on a trial basis and since then they have rolled out the programme to almost all of their offices around the country. CampusShip has enabled us to gain control and visibility of our shipping activity, and its deployment has yielded wonderful results, said Werner Just, Deputy Director of Logistics.
The latest geographic expansion includes Austria, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Indonesia, Israel, Macau, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Sweden, Turkey, and Vietnam*.
CampusShip is available in 20 languages.
