Oz Development, a provider of OzLINK, a cloud-based product that integrates and automates the order management process, announced their promotion to Strategic Alliance within the UPS Ready Program.

This integrated technology relationship accelerates the deployment of OzLINK software and UPS services to drive efficiencies in customers’ supply chains.

According to said Brian Hodgson, VP of Sales & Marketing at Oz Development, the company has been working with UPS for over ten years and is UPS Ready certified.

“This represents a new level of trust and partnership,” he said in an interview.

OzLINK solutions create value for its customers by integrating and automating eCommerce, order entry, warehouse, and shipping processes.


Key points of the expanded relationship include:

*Elevation to Strategic Alliance within the UPS Ready Program- OzLINK was promoted to the strategic level within the UPS Ready program, joining a select group of UPS Ready providers that are aligned with UPS objectives and market focus.

*New Support for UPS Freight and Ground with Freight Pricing- This new feature gives customers the ability to leverage both small package and freight services to improve their transportation operations and cost. As customers leverage these UPS services, they also have supporting technology to automate their distribution processes.

*130% Revenue Growth of OzLINK Pro- OzLINK Pro provides out of the box integration between UPS WorldShip® with QuickBooks or NetSuite. This on-demand solution provides real-time updates of shipping costs and tracking information to NetSuite or QuickBooks and can be activated in less than 15 minutes.

*Introduction of Advanced Fulfillment Extensions with UPS WorldShip- With the growth of eCommerce and international customers, sales channels are expanding, resulting in more complex fulfillment operations. With OzLINK Custom, customers can easily create branded pack slips, customized emails, and streamline their pick/pack/ship operation. All are integrated tightly with over 25 ERP applications.

“The combination of UPS and OzLINK is changing the way small & medium businesses can improve their logistics. Joint customers like Doctor’s Best and Ovation Hair have achieved operational improvements and rapid payback. ” said Hodgson.

UPS today announced diluted earnings per share of $1.32 for the third quarter 2014, a 13.8% improvement over the prior year period. Operating profit increased 8.3%, resulting from balanced growth across all three segments.

The Department of Transportation’s Bureau of Transportation Statistics (BTS) reported this week that U.S. trade with its North America Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) partners Canada and Mexico increased 4.4 percent from August 2013 to August 2014 at $100.6 billion.

As expected, global trade dipped from August to September but still saw annual gains, according to data issued this week by Panjiva, an online search engine with detailed information on global suppliers and manufacturers.

Transportation and logistics merger and acquisition (M&A) activity in the third quarter saw annual gains, which were driven by smaller deals in the trucking logistics, shipping, and passenger air sectors, according to data issued in the Intersections report by PwC this week.

With the holidays rapidly approaching, it appears retailers are not quite done getting inventory set up and on the shelves in time for what is expected to be a fairly active shopping season. That much was evident based on recent data for September volumes issued by the Port of Los Angeles (POLA) and the Port of Long Beach (POLB).
