IFS would like to join UPS as we celebrate small businesses this month. From making rolling pins in a family kitchen to shipping custom-designed fire extinguishers across the Atlantic, discover how these European businesses inspire us with their innovative ideas and drive our economy forward.

There’s nothing small about these small businesses. They’re transforming industries, exporting around the globe, and shaping a new world of work.

Here are four excellent examples of working smart with your logistics:

Example #1: Valek Rolling Pins — Poland

Valek Rolling Pins turned a family tradition into a business for bakers everywhere. See how UPS makes it easy to ship around the world.

Example #2: Fire Design — France

Fire Design hopes for a stylish fire extinguisher in every home. See why they chose UPS for quick, reliable, around-the-world shipping.

Example #3: Vandurit — Germany

Vandurit revolutionizes manufacturing with a small tool that makes a huge difference. See why they chose UPS to protect valuable shipments.

Example #4: Bibentes — Italy

Bibentes offer online wine, which is a rare thing in Italy. Shipping that wine is tricky as each bottle should spend as little time as possible in transit and be properly packed to avoid breakage. Watch the video below (subtitles) to find out why Bibentes chose UPS, one of our preferred partners to protect their wine and build their reputation.
