Protection for your supply chain and your bottom line.
At UPS Capital, a subsidiary of UPS®, we offer innovative supply chain solutions that not only help protect your finances, but manage the increasing risks of today's global supply chains.
Due to recent developments in the Ukraine, insurance protection for shipments to, within and from Ukraine, Ukrainian territorial waters and Russian territorial waters in the Black Sea and the Sea of Azov are suspended from coverage.
UPS Capital continues to closely monitor the situation and will re-establish service as soon as it is practical to do so.

Trade Credit Protection Services
Enable your global growth by quickly converting your invoices to cash, safely extending open credit terms to new or international buyers and reducing collection costs.
Offer more competitive terms without the increased credit risk.
Even though offering credit terms can be financially rewarding, it can be a risky business. If a customer is forced to close up shop or there’s a political event that puts your assets at risk, it can cripple your profits if you’re not prepared. By using trade credit protection services to safeguard your receivables against insolvency, bankruptcy or protracted default, you can accept larger domestic and export orders knowing you’re guaranteed payment.
Trade credit protection services are multi-purpose business tools that do more than just protect a company from a bad-debt loss. Protected receivables are viewed by lending institutions as safer collateral, so you may be able to get a larger loan at better rates. Plus, it gives you the business intelligence you need to:
- Make better customer credit decisions
- Build long-lasting relationships by offering open account terms
- Increase customer sales by offering more credit to your customers
- Qualify potential customers’ credit before tradeshows without the additional risk
