UPS is promoting a series of global trade initiatives to help small businesses grow.

UPS has announced a series of global trade initiatives meant to help small and midsized businesses compete and expand. The move should be welcome news for entrepreneurs trying to find their way through an evolving global business climate.

As part of the round of initiatives, UPS will participate in a U.S. Small Business Administration Export Forum later this month. During the forum, the company's vice president of U.S. marketing will participate in a panel discussion with the SBA's director of international trade and a number of other experts.

UPS is also preparing the release of its latest Business Monitor United States survey, a study identifying global trade insights such as hurdles to exporting, markets of interest and current trends.

Finally, UPS will be helping small businesses by hosting a series of export seminars around the country and releasing "snapshot" guides for entrepreneurs looking to expand to specific countries.

The announcements from UPS could help efforts to boost exports from the United States. Last month, President Barack Obama said he wanted the country to double its exports by 2015.
