Q&A with Akiva

Do you relate to our mission - Move the world forward by delivering what matters? If so, please elaborate.

Yes, I can speak from the point of view of how our customer service team goes to any length to ensure a customer’s package is delivered on time. I remember one such case where we had to deliver a customer’s wedding dress on time. It was a Friday, so we didn't have deliveries in the UAE, so it was meant to be delivered on a Saturday. But the issue was that it was scheduled to be delivered in the second half of the day, same as her scheduled wedding time. So, I had to coordinate with our operations team and make sure that a special delivery was done.

What is unique about UPS?

The fact that they have an excellent open-door policy. At any point in time you can speak to anyone irrespective of their designation. Here, you can communicate concerns you might have at any point in time.
