Our History of Innovation

UPS recognized synergies between two subsidiary companies, ConnectShip and iShip, that would strengthen and diversify both entities if operating as one. The two companies began working together in 2011, but both ConnectShip and iShip have their own history of innovations in logistics technology.

UPS purchased TanData Corporation on August 15, 2001 and formed ConnectShip. The history of the ConnectShip innovation began in 1980 when TanData was created by A.R. Tandy. TanData Corporation pioneered the use of client-server technology to build the technology that has evolved into the powerful patented Progistics carrier compliance engine. ConnectShip now holds multiple patents covering technologies for shipping automation.

iShip, became a wholly owned subsidiary of UPS in 2001, but like ConnectShip, the iShip technology has much deeper roots. iShip was founded in 1997 and created the first ever UPS shipping label over the internet on April 15th, 1998. iShip holds multiple patents surrounding the rating and creation of shipping labels over the internet and cloud-based technologies. iShip solutions are used in over 8,000 locations.
