UPS debuts time-sensitive, heavyweight service
UPS has unveiled a new express air freight service, UPS Worldwide ExpressFreight, for urgent, time-sensitive and high-value international heavyweight shipments. The service is an extension of the UPS Worldwide Express package portfolio.
The service allows UPS customers to ship pallets of more than 150 lbs. as easily as packages exclusively within the company's global air network from 37 origins to 41 destination countries and territories. UPS says the service features some of the fastest times in transit in the industry, including overnight shipping from the Asia Pacific region, Europe and the Americas to the U.S.. Two-day shipping is available to Europe from Asia Pacific, the U.S., and the Americas.
UPS Worldwide Express Freight service offers many of the same features as UPS’s Worldwide Express package service, including automated shipment preparation, online tracking and proactive notification technology.
“Global commerce is vital for our customers and UPS Worldwide Express Freight helps companies get to market faster, capture more business and boost their competitiveness,” said Ed Buckley, UPS president of marketing.
“Our customers depend on the speed, reliability and visibility that UPS provides with our package express services. Customers, particularly in the industrial manufacturing, automotive, high-tech, retail and healthcare segments, have asked us for the same features for their urgent freight shipments.”
