U.S.-based package delivery conglomerate United Parcel Service (UPS) has named industry veteran Jeff McCorstin president of UPS Freight Forwarding in Asia-Pacific.
Based in Singapore, McCorstin assumes responsibilities for air, ocean, road and rail freight strategy, revenue growth, and specialized transportation services across 40 countries and territories in the Asia-Pacific.
McCorstin has been with UPS for 23 years, starting as a package delivery driver in California, U.S., in 1990, and rising to leadership roles in engineering, finance, strategy, and most recently, freight forwarding.
“We will continue to look into high-growth sectors such as health care, high- tech, retail, and automotive across Asia-Pacific,” McCorstin said.
Prior to his post as senior vice president of international air and ocean freight, McCorstin worked under various business functions at the UPS headquarters in Atlanta, UPS global hub Worldport in Louisville, Kentucky, and several districts within the United States.
In 2005, McCorstin relocated to Brussels, Belgium, where he was named chief financial officer of UPS Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA). He was named managing director of UPS EMEA Freight Forwarding in 2008.
McCorstin earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Engineering from the University of California and a Master of Business Administration degree in Finance from San Diego State University.
