UPS’s services, UPS Worldwide Express and UPS Express Plus are to be expanded across 40 new countries, extending the reach of its international time- and day-definite delivery for urgent parcels.
The two services now reach businesses in 140 countries, including the top 20 countries by GDP with morning delivery. Worldwide Express and Express Plus offer morning or midday service for companies looking to improve time to market, speed inventory replenishment and meet urgent needs for time-sensitive shipments to international growth areas around the world.
“Cross-border trade continues to present growth opportunities for us and for customers of all sizes,” said Nando Cesarone, president of UPS International. “By expanding the reach of our industry-leading express services, we’re better connecting our customers to where we see continued growth potential. Our time-sensitive services are faster, they speed up time-to-market in high-growth economies and they offer another way for our customers to optimize their cross-border supply chains. Every advantage counts, especially for smaller businesses starting out. Their success is what drives commerce and creates jobs – globally.”
The logistics giant is also adding new postal codes in 14 European countries as well as extending its footprint in Asia, the Americas and the Indian sub-continent. Across the Middle East and Africa, Algeria, Namibia, Reunion, Nigeria and Qatar have seen service improvements.
“Increasing the speed to market for our customers in emerging economies, especially small businesses, means that they are better positioned to compete on equal footing with competitors anywhere in the world,” said Jean-Francois Condamine, UPS president of Growth and Emerging Markets. “Our customers depend on the speed, reliability and visibility that UPS express services provide to help their urgent, time-sensitive shipments reach high-growth potential markets in Europe, Asia, and beyond.”
