UPS announces European network enhancements

UPS announces European network enhancements

The enhancements include faster ground shipping to Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Romania, and Slovakia. UPS Express shipments are improving as well, with faster shipping times between the UK and Lithuania and northwestern Poland.

“Business owners in the UK need to be confident their customers will receive their orders on time, at the right place and at the right price,” said Luis Arriaga, country manager, UPS UK. “To help businesses do this, we’ve reduced shipping times by up to 24 hours.”

UPS said the recent time in transit improvements are part of its $2bn investment in its European network and infrastructure between 2014 and 2019. UPS has already completed one-third of this network expansion and redesign programme, with new facilities announced in Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, The Netherlands, Poland, Sweden and the UK.

In November 2015, UPS announced plans to construct a new 32,000 square meter package sorting and delivery facility at the DP World London Gateway logistics site in the south east of England.

The facility, expected to be completed this summer, will act as a UK hub and distribution centre for the local area as well as a key gateway to UPS’s global transportation network. Once completed, the facility will be able to process approximately 30,000 packages an hour, with room for further expansion.
