UPS launches e-commerce platform in Australia

UPS has announced the global expansion of UPS My Choice service to 96 additional countries and territories, including Australia.

According to the company, this package-delivery management service has the ability to help more busy consumers and consignees around the world to track, schedule, and redirect their packages—just in time for the peak holiday shipping season.

This expansion, the largest since the service was launched seven years ago, comes as membership in UPS My Choice crosses the 52 million-member mark worldwide. This combination of scale and geography provides shippers a distinct advantage as cross-border shopping increases.

“Australians are turning to e-commerce more than ever before, with approximately 9.5 million Aussies now shopping online – nearly half the population [1],” said Stephen Stroner, Managing Director, UPS Australia & New Zealand. “Consumers are attracted to the flexibility of online shopping, and we believe this is something that should extend to the delivery phase. UPS My Choice allows consumers to take full control of their deliveries for a more convenient buying experience,” Stephen Stroner, Managing Director, UPS Australia & New Zealand said.
