28 new countries will benefit from the expanded coverage of UPS earliest morning package delivery service. UPS Worldwide Express Plus will be expanded to the new countries, while extending the service to cover more postal codes in the 25 countries the service already operates in.
UPS Express Plus is designed for urgent shipments, and offers guaranteed delivery on the next business day as early as 0800 depending on the destination of the package.
For UPS customers in the 25 existing countries, shippers can reach more customers in many more global business centres. In the UK for example, there will be 3000 more postcodes in range of the service, while Canada will gain 2000 more postal codes in range of the service.
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 will see 19 new countries brought into the new Worldwide Express Plus service reach, with economic centres affected including Romania, Serbia and Turkey.
The international delivery company has said that it expects expanding early morning delivery in London, Paris and Milan will benefit luxury goods retailers who demand quick turnaround between design, sampling, production and fulfilment cycles.
The UPS Express shipping portfolio now 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.
