UPS has expanded its time- and day-definite delivery services to new locations in 40 countries, including five new countries, as demand for urgent shipments continues to ramp up.
The delivery giant said its express services are now available across 140 countries and territories, reaching the top 20 countries by GDP with morning delivery.
“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.”
UPS has expanded its express services footprint with new postal codes in 14 European countries, as well as other markets in Asia, the Americas and the Indian Sub-continent. In the Middle East and Africa, five new markets are now connected to the UPS express delivery network: Algeria, Namibia, Reunion, and Nigeria and Qatar.
