Doing business with suppliers in other countries can open up
possibilities -- and create challenges.
Managing vendors and orders can be a daunting task when you factor
in varying languages, cultures, time zones and distance. Our Supplier
Management service can provide you the critical components to
enable successful international commerce. Acting as your eyes
and ears around the world, we bridge time zones, cultures, distance
and languages to help create a seamless supply chain. We leverage
our international infrastructure, systems and experience on your
behalf to proactively manage your overseas suppliers to help bring
order, control, and reliability to international supply chains.
Now you can have the vital order, item and vendor fulfillment
information you need -- long before your order is scheduled to ship.
By having information earlier in the fulfillment process, you can
gain more control and lower your costs. Using your standard operating
procedures, and purchase order details, along with our state-of-the-art
”cloud based” technology platform, UPS Order Watch®, we can monitor
critical data and events, and communicate any
deviations from plan. Information is available to you online, so you can access
data when you need it and more efficiently collaborate with your suppliers and service providers.
