UPS expands early morning delivery to 28 countries

The Atlanta, Ga.-based parcel giant expanded its earliest morning package delivery service, which is now available in 56 countries.

   UPS is expanding its earliest morning package delivery service, Worldwide Express Plus, to 28 additional countries and enhancing service to cover more postal codes in 25 existing countries.
   Businesses in the industrial manufacturing, automotive, healthcare and retail industries use the service for urgent shipments. The UPS Worldwide Express Plus service offers guaranteed delivery on the next business day as early as 8:00 a.m., depending on the destination.
   In the 25 existing countries, shippers can reach more customers in many global business centers. The service is not limited to the largest cities. This expansion now makes the service available in 3,000 additional postal codes in the United Kingdom and 2,000 more postal codes in Canada.
   “Companies that require spare parts quickly to keep operations running, and healthcare customers shipping emergency products rely on the speed and dependability of the service,” said Jim Barber, president of UPS International. “With this latest expansion, the coverage area comprises nearly 90 percent of the global gross domestic product and nearly 90 percent of global real imports.”
   Europe adds 19 countries with the greatest expansion of service in emerging economic centers including Romania, Turkey and Serbia. Romania is projected to be the fastest growing economy in Eastern Europe this year.
   Expanding early morning delivery in Paris, London and Milan will benefit luxury goods retailers that demand quick turnarounds between their design, sampling, production and fulfillment cycles.
   J. Hilburn, a luxury menswear brand, uses the UPS Worldwide Express Plus service for inbound shipments of made-to-measure suits and custom shirts from Portugal and Malaysia to the United States. “Before using UPS Worldwide Express Plus, we couldn’t start processing customer orders until midday. Now with the earlier delivery, we can get our product in and out in the same day,” Wayne Davis, the company’s logistics and operations director, said in a UPS news release. “Having consistent delivery is a game changer.”
   Mexico, a large auto exporter, and Vietnam, a large apparel center, will also be major beneficiaries of the new service, UPS said.
   UPS Worldwide Express Plus is now available in 56 countries.
