UPS adds parts depots in China
UPS said Thursday that it is increasing its global service parts logistics network by establishing 101 new field stocking locations (FSLs) in China.
'China is a critical part of the growth strategy of many companies worldwide and UPS's extensive regional and global FSL network enables companies to be well-positioned to support their after-market needs in Asia,' said Brad Mitchell, president of UPS Logistics and Distribution.
With the expansion, UPS said it covers 89 key cities across China with more than 110 bonded and non-bonded FSLs. Companies in industries that require same-day and/or next-business-day delivery of critical service parts will benefit from UPS's expansion. Examples of these industries include high-tech/electronics, medical equipment and aerospace.
