UPS makes cross-border even easier for U.S. businesses

UPS makes cross-border even easier for U.S. businesses

UPS  has added 122 destination countries that are available to its U.S. customers using the company’s Saturday pick-up solution for export shipments.

The service is expanding from 57 to 179 countries worldwide, including 20 new markets in Europe, 28 in the Americas, 2 in Asia Pacific and 72 in the Middle East and Africa.

Businesses that schedule a Saturday pick-up for their UPS Worldwide Express portfolio packages from the U.S. to 179 international markets will have their shipments processed and shipped on Sunday and delivered as soon as Monday.

“We are expanding our Saturday export pick-up service to now reach 179 markets and we think it will help inspire smaller customers looking to chase opportunities across borders,” said Nando Cesarone, President, UPS International.

“Small and medium businesses account for 98% of all exporting companies in the U.S. But only 1% of all businesses in the U.S. are exporting. Just imagining the many opportunities out there for companies isn’t enough if you want to grow. That’s why we’re tripling the number of high-growth international markets that growth-minded companies can export to on a Saturday. An extra pick-up day for businesses – especially the smaller ones – seeking to expand their customer base is another way to show that selling across borders can be as straightforward as shipping at home.”

The Saturday export pick-up service benefits U.S. businesses that want to ship exports six days per week or need a rush on weekend orders. It is part of UPS’s portfolio of Saturday ground delivery and pick-up services for its U.S. customers, launched in 2017, which was one of the largest time-in-transit improvements in the company’s 110-year history.

Exporting can benefit companies not only by opening doors to new customers and partners, but also by providing additional revenue diversification. Companies that export to multiple countries are also nearly 8.5 % less likely to go out of business than companies that do not export. With 95 % of consumers located outside the U.S., there is a vast untapped market that is ripe for new entrants.
