ATLANTA, Nov. 06, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- UPS Capital®, a subsidiary of UPS® (NYSE:UPS), today announced the launch of its online single-shipment coverage which gives businesses immediate access to transactional insurance – regardless of the shipping mode or carrier.
UPS Capital CargoEdge® single-shipment coverage supports an enhanced customer experience by providing insurance coverage through a fast and secure process. Customers can request and receive insurance coverage on shipments in a matter of minutes – all online.
“As more companies rely on digital transactions to keep pace with business demands, it was important for us to respond with flexible, innovative shipping coverage,” said UPS Capital President Mark Robinson. “It puts speed, control and choice in the customer’s hands, where it should be.”
According to a study of U.S. businesses, 92% of shippers experience some type of loss, damage or delay that impacts 10-15% of their annual shipments. While many shippers elect protection through the carrier’s liability, they may be missing the value of real shipping insurance. Now, customers can enjoy the benefits of protection with turn-key, single-shipment coverage in as little as 5 minutes.
Coverage is ideal for:
“Everything we’re doing now is about choice and convenience,” Robinson said. “We’re giving customers the option to choose the coverage they need for their shipments with ease and flexibility – whenever it suits them.”
Coverage highlights include:
UPS Capital also offers a suite of shipping insurance APIs that businesses can integrate into their existing systems. As UPS Capital continues to innovate superior insurance coverage through digital connectivity, customers enjoy greater flexibility with coverage, when and where they need it.
