UPS expands Express Freight Service in Middle East
Businesses in those countries will have access to the specialized, guaranteed, fast service created for time-sensitive and high-value international heavyweight shipments over 150 lbs. Among the supply chain benefits are reduced transit times, shorter order fulfillment cycles and better customer service.
The number of businesses using the express freight service has increased by more than 250 percent since its launch in 2013. Moreover, companies using the service have experienced five to 18 times higher international market growth rates compared to their peers.
"The growth of the UPS Worldwide Express Freight service in a relatively short time period shows it is fulfilling a critical market need for a reliable, urgent heavy freight international shipping service," Bill Seward, president of U.S. International Exports at UPS, said. "We will continue to invest in service expansions as customer and industry needs evolve."
The UPS Worldwide Express Freight service is now available in 66 origin and 64 destination countries and territories.
