Together with UPS Express Critical, the company will offer worldwide delivery to customers in need of time-critical, temperature-sensitive logistics, it added.

“Together with MNX, we will further that reliability and speed globally, especially for our UPS Healthcare customers. We continue to invest in services that bring unique value to our customers and create additional growth opportunities for UPS,” Gutmann added.
