UPS Canada Continues to Offer SMBs Low Shipping Rates

For the second year in a row, UPS Canada has frozen online rates for customers and consumers, when a shipment is processed on or at an individually owned and operated participating The UPS Store location.

In the new year, shippers not on an existing UPS rate agreement, will enjoy the same low rates from 2018, with lowered rates when shipping to a residential address.

For businesses with more complex needs, a suite of solutions available to SMBs, including fulfillment programs, visibility tools, and cross-border logistics support, are designed to keep them focused on growing their business.

Working with organizations like Startup Canada and Mompreneurs, UPS collaborates with entrepreneurs to understand their needs, whether they are just starting or in a growth phase.

A team of UPS Ambassadors are available to help new businesses get started with UPS and offer support, as their business grows.

“We understand that helping entrepreneurs get started and most importantly grow, is good for everyone. It creates jobs, drives the economy and their success is directly tied to ours. Whether online or at The UPS Store, we’re providing simplified processing at a competitive rate, for customers with basic shipping needs with support available as their supply chain becomes more complex.”

Paul Gaspar, Director of Small Business, UPS Canada 

Growth Tools for Canadian Businesses

Since 2014, UPS has worked with Startup Canada to help support, promote and connect with the Canadian entrepreneur community and provide them with the advice and resources required to scale.

Programs like the Canadian Export Challenge, first launched in 2018 by Startup Canada, UPS Canada, and other partners, create a cohort of startups and industry partners to support the global ambitions of Canadian businesses.

This year, the Canadian Export Challenge visited seven cities across Canada, including Winnipeg, Vancouver, Edmonton, Ottawa, Mississauga, Fredericton and Montreal.

The final pitch event was held in Toronto, where each city finalist pitched for a grand prize of $25,000 in cash and $100,000 in in-kind support.
