Supplier Diversity

Formally launched in 1992, the UPS Supplier Diversity Process is committed to providing procurement opportunities to diverse suppliers interested in providing their products and services to UPS. 

Why is UPS committed to supplier diversity? Simply put, because everybody wins. UPS broadens its access to the best suppliers around...while quality suppliers get new opportunities to grow their business. 

UPS makes the following pledge to each and every diverse supplier:

  • We will have designated people at the corporate, region and district offices to assume the responsibility for reviewing the business opportunities for your company's products and/or services.
  • We will work with potential suppliers who qualify to do business with UPS and help them meet UPS's product specifications as well as ensure that the suppliers meet our quality, cost and delivery objectives.
  • We will review your application and certification(s) as quickly as possible and inform you of potential business opportunities when available.
