Along with the savings, you’ll have the power of logistics on your side. You get outstanding reliability, greater speed, more services and innovative technology. UPS guarantees delivery of more packages around the world than anyone, and delivers more packages overnight on time in the US than any other carrier, including FedEx. Simple shipping. Big savings. That’s logistics.

To participate in PIA’s UPS Savings Program, your agency must have a UPS account. If your agency doesn’t have a UPS account, you can open an account while enrolling.
