Merck, UPS grow closer in expanded logistics deal

Merck and UPS are deepening their logistics and distribution tie-up. The deal now extends internationally, upping the ante from its previous scope as a North American deal. The pair's relationship stretches back to 2003 as a straightforward transport and product delivery arrangement. The new deal has UPS providing distribution, warehousing and transportation services for Merck in Asia and Latin America, including China and Brazil. Transportation services in Europe are another part of the package. Story
