The new facilities are part of an effort to further link China to markets worldwide, UPS said. Each is adjacent to manufacturing centers, and they expand to more than 40 the number of logistics centers operated in China by UPS Supply Chain Solutions, the supply chain management arm of UPS.

In Futian, the new 240,000-square-foot bonded warehouse and full distribution center also is in a Free Trade Zone. The 66,000-square-foot Suzhou facility is designed for high-tech customers.

UPS Supply Chain Solutions' offerings now include freight forwarding, order and inventory management, shipment preparation, cross-dock operations, critical parts distribution, service parts logistics, international trade management, customs brokerage and domestic transportation services.
