In March 2013, UPS became the first global express delivery company to be wholly-owned in Vietnam. The change allows UPS to better connect Vietnam’s rapidly expanding economy to world markets through the UPS network. UPS has invested in new facilities and technology in key commercial and industrial centers across Vietnam. It has extended its express pickup and delivery service to 63 provinces in Vietnam and offered later pick-up and cut-off times. UPS has operations in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City.
In April 2017, UPS Vietnam announced the enhancement of its export services across 19 provinces to support local businesses as they pursue greater cross-border trade. Businesses will benefit from reduced transit times for export and import shipments moving within Asia, and improved shipment times from Europe. In addition, the cut-off times for pick-up have been extended by up to three hours. This service enhancement is part of UPS’s long-term strategy to provide local small-and-medium businesses with greater access to global trade.
In March 2019, UPS Vietnam expanded the service coverage of its Worldwide Express Freight service from existing 3 to a total 24 provinces in Vietnam as also the pallet dimensions and weight. Customer across these 24 provinces are now able to export and import urgent, heavy and palletized shipments with expanded dimensions and weight.
In September 2020, UPS launched its inaugural “Browntail” flights into Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi. The flights improve transit times from key Asia Pacific and Europe origins and increase capacity to support customers’ growing demands. Urgent shipments from China, Hong Kong, Japan, South Korea, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore and Taiwan can now be delivered in as fast as one day; while shipments from Australia, Great Britain, Germany, Italy, Spain and France can now be delivered in as fast as two days.
