United Parcel Service (UPS) has added 122 new countries that US customers can access using its Saturday pick up solution for exports.
The 122 new countries add to a current 57, 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.”
