As a result, shipments picked up from customers in mainland China, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam, Indonesia and Hong Kong can now be delivered to Australia as early as the next business day.

UPS customers in Australia meanwhile can also have deliveries across Asia Pacific and even to Europe completed as early as the next business day.

“With growth expected in industries such as high tech, manufacturing and healthcare over the next few years, we’re the logistics partner businesses can rely on to help them capitalize on this,” Ramos added.
