The fact that more than 80 percent of the world's consumers now live outside of any country’s border and the expectation that cross-border online trade will grow more than 25 percent annually make a compelling case for global trade. Despite these macro-trends, only a small percentage of merchants actually offer their products outside their border. UPS is uniquely positioned to help our customers take advantage of the opportunities afforded by global trade.- KATE GUTMANN
