Israel is a key destination in the high-tech sector with major players in the industry maintaining operations in the country. While nearly half of Israel’s exports come from this sector, UPS Express(R) Freight is also prepared to import and export everything from airplane and automobile parts to jewelry and precious gems, which also are manufactured in the country.

Now fully integrated with the European Union, Slovakia has developed as a key center for automotive and industrial manufacturing, representing manufacturing operations of some of the world’s largest auto makers. These industries particularly benefit from the time-definite services offered by UPS, which help keep manufacturing supply chains moving.
