It also said that UPS Premier Silver and Gold are now available in major markets around the world. UPS Premier Platinum adds the ability to monitor temperature, light and humidity while tracking shipments in and out of the UPS network. UPS Premier Platinum will be available this fall.

“The expansion and enhancement of UPS Premier supports the complex needs of our laboratory, medical and pharmaceutical customers around the world. Whether efficiently moving healthcare products between countries, maintaining negative 80-degree temperatures or locating life-saving shipments with precision, UPS Premier provides industry-leading visibility, control, reliability and recovery,” said Kate Gutmann, EVP and President International, Healthcare and Supply Chain Solutions, in the statement.

This service connects major global trade lanes, and is now expanding geographically. These new offerings provide customers even more benefits, including efficient customs brokerage, environmental monitoring and visibility to meet the challenges of global healthcare logistics leaders.
