UPS Air Operations - Supplier Diversity


Customer, supplier and workforce diversity are central to UPS's business and strongly linked to our values and mission. Conducting business with and providing opportunities for minorities and women is just good business for UPS.

Formally launched in 1992, the UPS Supplier Diversity Program is committed to providing business opportunities to small,  minority- and women-owned businesses. In addition, UPS encourages majority suppliers to support women- and minority-owned firms. We are committed to ensuring that our supplier diversity process strengthens the minority- and women-owned businesses that drive economic development in our communities.

Supplier Diversity in UPS's Air Operations

  • For both expansions of Worldport, UPS committed to awarding $48 million of its budget for general construction and site work to minority- and women-owned business enterprises (MWBE). UPS exceeded the goal, awarding $113 million to minority- and women-owned firms.

How it Works

  • UPS works closely with the local community and contractors to help identify minority- and women-owned businesses to participate in the bid process.
  • The process uses a mentoring approach, encouraging prime contractors to partner up with MWBE firms.
  • UPS is also committed to procuring Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) parts through its diverse supplier network.
