UPS Worldwide Express Plus expansion
UPS has expanded the coverage of its earliest morning package delivery service, UPS Worldwide Express Plus, to reach 28 new countries, as well as enhancing the service to cover more postal codes in the 25 existing countries. Designed for urgent shipments, the UPS Express Plus service offers guaranteed delivery on the next business day as early as 8:00 a.m., depending on the destination.
In the 25 existing countries, shippers can reach more customers in many global business centres. This expansion now makes the service available in 3,000 additional postal codes in the United Kingdom and 2,000 more postal codes in Canada.
Jim Barber, UPS International President, said: “With this latest expansion, the coverage area comprises nearly 90% of the global gross domestic product and nearly 90% of global real imports.”
Europe adds 19 countries with the greatest expansion of service in emerging economic centers including Romania, Turkey and Serbia.
UPS expects that expanding early morning delivery in Paris, London and Milan will benefit luxury goods retailers that demand quick turnarounds between their design, sampling, production and fulfillment cycles.
The UPS Express shipping portfolio includes:
- UPS Worldwide Express Plus for early-morning delivery to 56 countries
- UPS Express for midday delivery to 118 countries and territories
- UPS Express Saver for end-of-day delivery to 220 countries and territories.
