UPS Next Day Air Early service adds 12,680 zip codes

The Atlanta, Ga.-based shipping and logistics provider’s earliest small package and delivery service, UPS Next Day Air Early, added 12,680 U.S. zip codes to its network.

   UPS’s earliest small package delivery service, UPS Next Day Air Early, added 12,680 additional U.S. zip codes to its network to establish an earlier guaranteed delivery option for customers in locations that previously had only end-of-day guarantees, the company said.
   The majority of the new zip codes are in extended areas, which means customers will receive their packages by noon or 2:00 p.m.
   With this expansion, the UPS Next Day Air Early service now reaches 94 percent of zip codes within the U.S. and 98 percent of businesses throughout the nation.
   The expansion was implemented in two phases, with the first phase in November and the second phase this month.
   Saturday service is available to select destinations. In addition, UPS caters to businesses that need international express shipments with delivery options from the U.S. to more countries by 9:00 a.m. and before noon than any other carrier, UPS said.
   “Already we’ve seen manufacturers, healthcare companies and professional services, such as financial firms, respond to the expansion,” UPS Executive Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer Alan Gershenhorn said. “Getting a package by noon or 2:00 p.m. has proven to be attractive. For example, businesses use those additional hours to process documents faster, or to turn inventory or lab specimens around quicker.”
   In the U.S., the service has been renamed to UPS Next Day Air Early, while in Canada, it is now referred to as UPS Express Early. Formerly, the service was named UPS Next Day Air Early A.M. in the U.S. and UPS Express Early A.M. in Canada.
