UPS expands express services to international high-growth markets


UPS Worldwide Express has expanded into 14 new countries guaranteeing time- and day-definite delivery for urgent shippers. The increased global services also include later pick-up times, improved time-in-transit and Saturday delivery in seven countries in the Indian subcontinent, Middle East and Africa (ISMEA).

Notable areas which UPS will guarantee time- and day-definite delivery include Panama, where customers can benefit from the Colón Free Trade Zone, and Nigeria, Africa’s largest economy.

Express services have also been expanded with new postal codes added in 26 European countries as well as other high-growth markets such as South Korea, China, Hong Kong, Indonesia and Singapore. UPS also added Saturday delivery in seven ISMEA countries, later pick-up times in 22 European countries, and later cut-off times in five countries in Asia.

For customers with urgent freight needs, UPS Worldwide Express Freight Midday now offers time-definite delivery of international palletized shipments to over 39,000 new postal codes in Europe.

“UPS wants to give its customers more options to deliver faster, earlier, on the weekend, and with later pick-up and cut-off times,” said Jean-Francois Condamine, UPS president of Growth and Emerging Markets. “We provide importer and exporters with greater flexibility and guaranteed services to fit their time-sensitive needs around the world.”
