近期,UPS快递在纽约举办了“转型会议”,其概述了国际、国内快递业务的拓展计划以及自动化计划,以期望更好地适应跨境电子商务的不断发展,并期待巨量的投资将会获得巨量的回报。 2018年第二季度,UPS快递有些艰难。第二季度报告显示,其营业利润同比下降了13.0%。当时,UPS快递的首席财务官Richard Peretz将其美国国内快递业务的大幅下滑,归咎于“养老金支出攀升以及有关项目的成本支出”。2018年上半年,UPS快递的资本支出已经达到约28亿美元,而预计2018年全年资本支出总额将达到65-70亿美元。“转型会议”期间,UPS快递表示,通过今年早些时候所推出的自愿退休计划,期望能每年为其节省2亿美元,并提升10亿美元的现金流。 此外,UPS快递认为其70亿美元的资本支出是大势所趋,目的是为了匹配其所预期的国内快递收入快速增长以及跨境电商业务的快速增长。目前,UPS快递正在积极扩大其企业对企业(B2B)和企业对消费者(B2C)的服务产品,并预期至2022年,美国的商务快递收入将增长40%;未来三年,跨境电商业务量将增长28%。 为了追赶市场发展的步伐,UPS快递表示,2018年至2020年,每年都将致力于提升其国内分拣设施每小时35-40万件的最大处理能力,届时,其同类设施分拣能力将比2017年提高7倍。 在分拣设施自动化方面,UPS快递也进行了大量投资以进一步提高操作效率。UPS快递的首席执行官David Abney表示,尽管目前已经有大约50%的UPS快件通过分拣系统自动化操作,至2022年,预计100%的快递包裹都将通过全自动分拣设施来进行操作。根据UPS快递的自动化规划,至2022年,其将会开设7个全新的“超级枢纽”全自动分拣设施。其中,三分之二的投资将用于改善其在美国国内的服务产品。
