正如UPSChief Executive Carol B.Tome said: "The improvement in the international market is due to the growth of export business in some markets, but UPS business demand is still relatively weak, in order to expand the market, UPS will focus on returns and bulky goods in the future.。This decision not only reflects UPS's keen insight into market changes, but also foreshadows the future development trend of the logistics industry。

As an important link in the field of cross-border e-commerce, the return business has shown rapid growth in recent yearsBasically, the return rate of all major markets is not low。Recently, the German digital association Bitkom released data from a survey showing thatGerman consumers return 11 percent of their purchases online。As consumers have higher and higher requirements for shopping experience, the quality and efficiency of return service will become an important factor affecting shopping decisionsUPS is keen to capture this market opportunity, returns business as a new growth point。

Second, recover the decline

In fact, the current situation in the global freight market is not optimistic,Global freight volumes are on a downward trendUPS, as an international logistics giant, has naturally been hit hard.This is also an important reason for it to find new growth points。

According to the latest data released by UPS,In the first quarter of 2024, UPS's average daily package volume in the U.S. market decreased by 3.The average daily package volume in the international market also decreased by 5 percent.8%。Although this is slower than the rate of decline in business volume in the fourth quarter of 2023, there is no denying that UPS has been suffering from a halving of business volume。

As one of the world's largest freight companies, UPS has long been aware of the impending crisis。因此In the face of declining business volumes and market challenges, UPS has taken a series of measures early on。其中,Layoffs have become an important tool。It is understood that UPS previously announced layoffs 1.20,000 employees to save about $1 billion in operating costs, and alsoSale of Coyote truck brokerage business。
