UPS launches enhanced monitoring service

UPS has launched a shipment monitoring and risk management service for high value shipments that are time and temperature sensitive.

The UPS Proactive Response Secure, service is designed to help in ensuring  shipments reach their destinations.

It guarantees up to the retail value, in addition to other costs, when unexpected events occur – including weather delays.

“This is the highest level of service we offer. By leveraging our proprietary technology, UPS can identify shipments that will be impacted by a delay,” said Bill Hook, vice president of UPS global healthcare strategy.

UPS Proactive Response Secure is available throughout the US and for outbound shipments to the UK and other European Union countries.

The new Proactive Response Secure service is optimal for healthcare shipments, including specialty pharmaceuticals, biologics, diagnostic specimens, implantable surgical materials and clinical trial shipments. It also is effective in other industries with high-value shipments or time- or temperature-sensitive needs.
