BIO has partnered with UPS to bring members up to 70% off UPS Next Day Air® services, and up to 65% off UPS Worldwide International services. This is a significant saving off published rates! UPS offers members great savings and the peace of mind that accompanies reliable service with guaranteed delivery, and innovative technology. UPS is the world’s largest package delivery company and reaches more U.S. ZIP Codes by 8:00 AM than FedEx. Speed, reliability, and special savings for members—it’s that simple!
Members currently enrolled in the expired FedEx program can expect to see additional savings of 10%-20% by switching to UPS. Existing UPS customers must enroll to take advantage of this exclusive offer.
