Bicycle shipping service BikeFlights.com has signed a partner carrier agreement with UPS, ‘the world’s largest package delivery company and a leading global provider of specialized transportation and logistics services’.
“Partnering with UPS aligns well with our mission to serve cyclists of all types, especially as we expand our e-commerce and international shipping services,” said William Alcorn, BikeFlights.com’s President. “UPS not only supports our business goals, but also our sustainability initiatives and efforts to give back to the local community like we do with our cycling non-profit partners.”
BikeFlights.com adds that it helps individual cyclists ship their bikes, wheels and bike-related gear for event, vacation or work travel and after selling them online. The company adds that it also strives to meet the bike shipping needs of bike shops, tour operators and other cycling industry partners.
“The market today demands flexible and international logistic solutions for companies to reach their business goals,” said Lawrence Catipay, Northwest District Director of Sales for UPS. “I believe we can help BikeFlights.com move towards their business goals, and it’s a natural fit since UPS started as a bicycle messenger company right here in the Northwest.”
BikeFlights.com began offering shipping with UPS on Wednesday, March 27, 2019.
