ATLANTA, April 23, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- UPS (NYSE:UPS) Supply Chain Solutions today announced warehouse network technology designed to make distribution centers smarter and more efficient. The new Warehouse Execution System (WES) will enable faster order intake and fulfillment to ensure that customers, especially those with fluctuating order patterns, receive their products on time.

"WES enables UPS to better leverage our global warehouse network and integrated technology to help our customers reduce capital, improve service and speed to end customers," said Philippe Gilbert, president of Supply Chain Solutions. "We also can create more custom and turnkey outsourced fulfillment services to meet our customers' unique supply chain needs."
