UPS Inc. (NYSE:UPS) has added the busy Mexican border city of Ciudad Juarez to its list of markets to receive next-day deliveries of palletized freight to the U.S., the company said yesterday.
Under the service, called “Worldwide Express Freight,” shippers receive guaranteed door-to-door delivery service by the end of the next business day. The guarantee is available only when a shipper requests a pick-up before 10:00 a.m. and uses UPS’ customs brokerage services.
Located in the border state of Chihuahua, Ciudad Juarez is a busy point for cross-border traffic. It is a key location for companies that export industrial components using different supply chains. The UPS service specializes in rapid deliveries of heavy cargo, time-sensitive and high-value shipments.
The service is already available in 21 Mexican states.
