UPS (NYSE: UPS) announced an expansion of its services to and from Croatia, as a results of the country's adhesion to UE, creating a uniform portfolio of shipping options across the now 28 EU member states.
By introducing new shipping options and other value-added services to its product portfolio, UPS gives customers shipping to and from Croatia greater flexibility to balance speed with cost, as well as more efficient access to global markets. With the elimination of trade barriers, procedures have been standardised, and shipments between Croatia and other EU countries can be processed more easily without the need for additional documentation.
“The expansion of the EU internal market to Croatia represents new opportunities for businesses shipping into and out of the country,” said Cindy Miller, president, UPS Europe. “Robust exports and international trade are sources of growth, and UPS is well-positioned and ready to help companies in Croatia and all over Europe take advantage of Croatia’s EU entry.”
