UPS expands worldwide express service

UPS is expanding its UPS Worldwide Express service to more than 41,000 new postal codes around the world – the largest one-time expansion of the service in the carrier’s history.

The service is part of the UPS Express portfolio, which offer three guaranteed time-of-day delivery options, and features:

  • Express Plus for early-morning delivery to 27 countries
  • Express for midday delivery to 65 countries
  • Express Saver for end-of-day delivery to 220 countries and territories

From 19th October, UPS Worldwide Express service will be available in all of the new postal codes.

UPS Worldwide Express service offers guaranteed delivery on the next possible business day by 10:30 a.m., noon or 2:00 p.m. depending on the destination.

“We are pleased to expand the global footprint of UPS Worldwide Express,” said Nick Basford, vice president of international marketing at UPS. “As international trade continues to grow and supply chains become increasingly global, businesses need guaranteed time-of-day delivery they can count on. Their success, in turn, drives global commerce and creates jobs.”

The majority of the new postal codes are in Asia Pacific. In Europe and Canada, UPS is further expanding its coverage, while the new postal codes in Latin America, the Indian Sub-continent, the Middle East and Africa will grow UPS’s footprint in these burgeoning regions.
