UPS Enhances TradeAbility Tool

Share this article:

UPS has made improvements to its TradeAbility global trade management tool, including a "screener" that automatically alerts shippers if theyare trying to send a package to a person, organization or country under official government restriction.

The upgraded Denied Party Screener tool, unveiled June 6 at the Internet Retailer Conference in Chciago, helps customers comply with government trade regulations by identifying restricted trading partners before goods are shipped. Without a tool like this customers run the risk of customs seizing packages.

TradeAbility's Denied Party Screener tool relies on more than 25 U.S. government lists, and 10 non-U.S. lists, for its source information. That automates the process for shippers and eliminates the need to consult each list individually. The international sources include lists published by the United Nations, Interpol, Canada and Japan. UPS monitors these lists daily for up-to-date results.

UPS TradeAbility is a Web-based management tool that helps international shippers manage the customs clearance processes.

TradeAbility tools are available on UPS.com or can be integrated into a customer's business applications or Web site using Web services technology.

TradeAbility services are offered free of charge or for a small transaction fee under $2 .
