What’s new: UPS customers in Thailand can now enjoy faster delivery options with the country’s top Asia Pacific trade partners. UPS added a new flight from Bangkok Suvarnabhumi Airport to the UPS Intra-Asia Hub in Shenzhen, China.

Why it matters: UPS data shows that trade between Thailand and the other top Asia Pacific economies could double to $550 billion by 2030, if the full potential of the intra-Asia trade opportunity is unleashed.

It’s all about reliability: This flight connects leading Asia Pacific economies faster than ever. It opens up more cross-border trade opportunities for small businesses using UPS’s network and our industry-leading services to global destinations including Europe and the United States.

“We know how important it is for our customers to have easy access to fast, consistent and stable air cargo capacity,” said Russell Reed, UPS Thailand managing director. “This flight connects UPS customers in Thailand’s industrial heartland to more of the country’s top regional trading partners faster than ever, offering more cross-border trade opportunities for businesses using UPS’s network and our industry-leading delivery services to other global destinations including Europe and the United States.”

Growing our network: This is the third year in a row that UPS has introduced a new flight into its Asia Pacific air network, after services to and from Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City in 2020, and adding Osaka Kansai in 2021.

Go deeper: Suvarnabhumi is Thailand’s busiest airport in terms of both passenger and cargo. The new flight to Shenzhen is part of a new, transcontinental flight loop that connects UPS’s international air hub in Cologne with Thailand, China and the company’s new Indian airport gateway facility in Bengaluru, India.
