BikeFlights, who provide a cycle shipping service for cyclists has just announced that it has signed a partner carrier agreement with UPS, the world’s largest package delivery company and a leading global provider of specialised transportation and logistics services.
“Partnering with UPS aligns well with our mission to serve cyclists of all types, especially as we expand our e-commerce and international shipping services,” William Alcorn, the company’s President, told us. “UPS not only supports our business goals, but also our sustainability initiatives and efforts to give back to the local community like we do with our cycling nonprofit partners.”
The company helps individual cyclists ship their bikes, wheels and bike-related gear for events, holiday or work travel as well as if they have sold them online, and it also strives to meet the bike shipping needs of bike shops, tour operators and other cycling industry partners. Cyclists get great rates, excellent service and premium protection with every shipment.
“The market today demands flexible and international logistic solutions for companies to reach their business goals,” said Lawrence Catipay, Northwest District Director of Sales for UPS. “I believe we can help BikeFlights.com move towards their business goals, and it’s a natural fit since UPS started as a bicycle messenger company right here in the Northwest.”
The service with UPS starts immediately and the company has confirmed to us that this service is available here in Europe as well.
The company is the leading name in the bicycle shipping business and by specialising in this niche sector make it easy for you to ship your bike. So far over 500,000 cyclists have used them since 2009.
Founded in 1907 as a messenger company in the United States, UPS has grown into a multi-billion-dollar and is probably the world’s largest package delivery company and a leading global provider of specialised transportation and logistics services. Every day they manage the flow of goods, funds, and information in more than 200 countries and territories worldwide.
Between the two, you should be able to get your bike transported to pretty much anywhere in the world.
