UPS Pioneers Technologies that Help Businesses Do More with Less

UPS Makes Sustainability
Work for Business

For more than 100 years, UPS has integrated efficient practices into daily delivery operations. Now more than ever, efficiency creates opportunity—whether streamlining supply chains or promoting sustainability.

Back in 1907, UPS carried parcels on foot and bicycle. The 1930s saw UPS introduce electric vehicles. These days UPS uses a range of alternative fuel and advanced technology vehicles. UPS has invested billions of dollars in technology, processes, and infrastructure designed to maximize fuel efficiency across their delivery network. And UPS innovation has pioneered such offerings as route optimization software, carbon-neutral shipping option, electronic commercial invoicing and eco-friendly packaging.

Beyond turning to UPS for their logistical needs, companies also seek out UPS in order to advance their own sustainability goals. By integrating UPS software, businesses of all sizes have automated shipment processing, customs clearance, as well as fulfillment and billing—improving productivity while saving money and paper.

"Our decision-making is led by sustainability principles that have served us well for over a century—a balance of economic prosperity, social responsibility and environmental stewardship." Scott Davis, UPS Chairman and CEO.
