UPS "Asia-Pacific" hub is in Shenzhen which is connected to Australia, India, Korea, Singapore, Vietnam, Japan amongst other markets. This hub carries 75% of the companies intra-regional shipments, and represents about 2/3 of the flying in the region serving 21 airports.
UPS also has a "International Air Hub" at Shanghai Pudong that is connected to the the UPS global air network with flights to the U.S. and European destinations.

I'd say regional HQ in Singapore has more to do with taxes/finance, than any logistics need.
|Quoting mozart (Reply 6):|
So can you explain to me the difference between an "Asia-Pacific" hub (SZX) and an "International Air Hub" (PVG)?
|Quoting blueflyer (Reply 7):|
The difference isn't in the kind of freight, but in the origin/destination. PVG is for shipments between China and destinations outside the Asia-Pacific region. SZX handles shipments within the Asia-Pacific region and between Asia-Pacific and the rest of the world.
|Quoting mozart (Reply 8):|
So why do they have two different ones then?
