Reaching International Markets
The global economy is changing and opportunity for your company exists in markets that you might not have considered. Over the next 15 years, 80% of the world's economic growth is projected to come from outside of North America and Europe. Growth will come from a new middle class of customers that are ready to buy your products. UPS can get you there. Our global network helps you reach more than 220 countries and territories at the speed you need while balancing deadlines with budgets. Is your business ready to grow?
E-commerce for International Growth
• E-commerce has grown exponentially. It's going to keep growing – and fast.
With all the opportunity comes competition. Retailers (both brick-and-mortar and e-tailers) must create a user-friendly, differentiated online shopping experience to get more of the growing pie.
But how? UPS commissioned comScore completed a survey of online shoppers. UPS Pulse of the Online Shopper provides insights that cover pre-purchase, checkout and post- purchase – and identify ways retailers can increase sales by improving the customer experience.
