Protection for your supply chain and your bottom line.
At UPS Capital, a subsidiary of UPS®, we offer innovative supply chain solutions that not only help protect your finances, but manage the increasing risks of today's global supply chains.
Give your customers the opportunity to protect their packages beyond the automatic protection provided by UPS. When they trust you with their packages, UPS customized declared value can provide them with additional peace of mind.
Peace of Mind that goes beyond the standards.
The great thing about shipping with UPS is that if your package is worth 85 € or less for both domestic and international shipments, you automatically benefit from a right to recover against loss or damage subject to the UPS terms and conditions of the tariff. But, what if you’re shipping high-value items like electronics or pharmaceuticals? With customized declared value, you can get an extra level of liability for your high-value, time-sensitive, perishable or hard-to-value items, with contractual liability up to $50,000 US per UPS Small Package parcel. You can even recover costs related to delayed shipments, such as reconstructing documents or penalties due to late delivery.
Choose from two types of liability recovery:
- Standard—Recovery for loss or damage to goods in transit up to your selling price
- Expanded—Recovery for delays in transit for time-sensitive or perishable items and documents
Most standard carrier liability programmes are generally more expensive and only cover the replacement costs and not the retail sales price. Our customisable and affordable options provide a stable cash flow by supporting your business through the unique risks, situations and challenges that come with transporting highly sensitive goods.
Keep capital invested in maintaining inventory and market share rather than tied up in administrative costs with no upfront fees or deposits. When you’re ready to ship, you can use your current UPS shipping software to choose which shipments you want to benefit from an extra level of liability and how much to declare them for, then pay as you go. Your customized declared value charges will appear right on your regular UPS bill.
