“The UPS Asia TMS team, headquartered in Singapore and with operations across the region, is poised to provide advanced technological support and customs brokerage expertise, and is well-equipped with the means to support efficient intra-Asia and global commerce,” said Rob Houck, vice president for marketing, UPS Asia.
Lee Eng Keat, director of logistics, Singapore Economic Development Board said, “The setup of UPS’s Asian regional office for TMS in Singapore will enhance the country’s capabilities and depth to provide companies with insights on compliance and customs brokerage across the region. It will further strengthen Singapore’s proposition as an ideal base for companies to navigate the increasingly complex supply chains in Asia.
