Transport time-sensitive pallets against tight deadlines using this UPS customer's shipping tip.

When shipping freight internationally, flexibility and predictability are luxuries most businesses seldom have, a reality that Cellairis, the world's largest wireless accessory franchise based in Alpharetta, Ga., knows all too well. "If we miss one day of orders and products are not available, it can cost the franchisee both dollars and customers, and damage the brand," says Taki Skouras, the company's CEO.

"We're good at creating wireless accessories. UPS is good at getting them where they need to go," says Cellairis' CEO.

To ensure its critical shipments were meeting tight delivery deadlines, the company turned to UPS international shipping solutions for help – most notably, UPS Worldwide Express Freight®. The specialized UPS international express service allowed Cellairis to import or export palletized shipments of more than 150 pounds within one to two days, a deadline that would prove challenging for many traditional air freight solutions.

According to Skouras, the company has saved an estimated 5,000 hours and $500,000 annually as a result of using UPS Worldwide Express Freight and other UPS services. "We're good at creating wireless accessories. UPS is good at getting them where they need to go," Skouras says. "When it comes to shipping, I trust UPS more than I trust myself."
