UPS was founded in 1907 in Seattle, Washington, USA, and has since become a global leader in logistics. It offers a broad range of solutions including the transportation of packages and freight, facilitation of international trade, and deployment of advanced technology to more efficiently manage the world of business. With its wide array of services to more than 220 countries and territories, UPS delivers more than 20 million packages every day.
UPS first entered Europe in 1976, when it established domestic operations in Germany. The company has since developed a comprehensive European service portfolio, combining local expertise in each market with UPS' international strength and high-quality standards.
With Turkey increasingly becoming a transportation bridge and near-sourcing location connecting Europe and Asia, having a young and dynamic population, and offering good opportunities for long-term growth, the market has become increasingly important to UPS. In 2009, UPS acquired its long-standing Turkish authorized service contractor and started its own operations in Turkey.
Today, the UPS network covers the whole of Turkey and has sizeable domestic and international operations with more than 20 points of access, 18 hubs equipped with the latest technology, one Supply Chain Solution center including more than 3,000 m² of warehouse space, more than 2,100 employees, 500 delivery vehicles, and a dedicated daily flight to/from Istanbul and Cologne.
UPS Turkey is well-positioned to meet the needs of its customers doing business to, from and within the country. It offers customers a comprehensive range of package, freight and supply chain management services and solutions that provide a competitive advantage by helping customers save money, become more efficient, and reach new markets.
UPS continually develops, extends, and enhances its world-class logistics capability through investments in its employees, assets, and technology in Turkey.
