UPS launches time critical service

UPS is targeting the healthcare, manufacturing and aerospace sectors with a service for urgent time-critical shipments in Europe.

UPS SwitzerlandUPS Express Critical is designed for goods that require special handling such as aircraft parts or surgical tools.

A UPS team assesses the shipping request through a round-the-clock contact centre, identifies transport alternatives and implements a delivery solution that meets time and cost requirements. Options include air, charter, surface and a personal courier who can carry the shipment by hand from origin to destination on a commercial flight.
