SEMA Members Save on Shipping Services

SEMA Show exhibitors and attendees can utilize a new member benefit from UPS to help lower their shipping and delivery costs.

SEMA has partnered with UPS to introduce a new member benefit that will help lower shipping and delivery costs. The benefit includes up to 34% off many package deliveries, more than 70% off Less than Truckload (LTL) freight and special offers on other UPS business services, such as parcel insurance, cargo finance loans, design and test labs and more.

“SEMA is always looking for ways to add value to our members’ benefits, and our strong partnership with UPS provided a great solution,” said Gary Vigil, SEMA membership director. “The discounts and benefits offered by UPS can make all the difference to a business trying to grow in these tough economic times.”

UPS has a long history of working with SEMA and the automotive industry. UPS provides SEMA Show exhibitors with streamlined and discounted services to help with shipments of products and booths back to their businesses after the Show. UPS experts help ensure that items are appropriately packaged, boxed and shipped where they need to go. They also assist with completion of forms and paperwork required for international shipments.

Having worked closely with the industry for several years, UPS has a good understanding of the industry and the needs of SEMA members. As a result, special discounts and services were developed for SEMA-member companies.

“The enhanced level of benefits UPS now offers SEMA members reflects our ongoing commitment to the automotive industry and the premier trade association for the automotive specialty market,” said Kristin DeBates, automotive segment marketing manager at UPS. “Logistics is our passion, but our mission is to help customers build business more efficiently, and these new offers can do just that.”
