Dubai, July 12, 2012
UPS has announced enhancements to several technology tools for UAE customers that streamline the process of creating shipments online and improve their ability to track multiple shipments at once.
“Our unmatched global network is enhanced by internet-based technology that allows shippers to better manage their shipments and have maximum visibility as their parcels move through our system,” said Mark Khayat, director of sales, UPS Turkey, Middle East and Central Asia.
“By continually expanding our technology offering, we help customers save time and money, and expand to new markets.”
Easy-to-use UPS Internet Shipping, which requires no software downloads, lets UAE customers create shipments online from any computer connected to the Internet.
Accessible through ups.com, a streamlined screen layout with step-by-step structure lets shippers enter all shipment details on a single page and print a shipping label, saving time and ensuring that all the required fields are properly filled in.
A range of additional options, from e-mail notifications to delivery confirmation, provide shippers with the package tracking tools they need to be informed about their shipments.

Staff from multiple departments or locations can access all the functionality of UPS Internet Shipping through their personal workstations, with permissions and access set by a designated administrator.
This central management of users provides consolidated control and complete visibility of shipping activities – helping to control overall costs and improve efficiency.
For maximum shipment visibility for higher-volume shippers, UAE customers will now be able to use Quantum View Manage, a secure and customizable web-based application that provides a complete, up-to-date view of shipment status information for all of a shipper’s outbound, inbound and third-party billed shipments.

Quantum View Manage also lets customers to view and download complete shipping information and create customized tracking summaries and reports to see the information most important to their business processes.
Additionally, because it provides an instant overview of shipment statuses, Quantum View Manage also helps businesses better serve their end customers by providing maximum visibility for their parcels.
