The UPS Worldwide Express Freight Service service, which functions as an express freight service geared towards urgent, time-sensitive, and high-value international shipments, was initially launched by Big Brown in January 2013.
UPS said UPS Worldwide Express Freight Midday offers a commit time of 12 p.m. or 2 p.m. from all 71 origin countries to 35 key destination countries that make up more than two-thirds of global GDP.
And it added that this offering provides guaranteed, time-definite delivery for urgent, international palletized shipments more than 150 pounds, with door-to-door delivery, including customs brokerage, in one-to-three days. What’s more, this service also leverages components of the UPS Worldwide Express package service, which allows customers to depend on UPS speed, reliability, and visibility to reach global markets faster before the end of day.
“We have customers in the industrial, auto, high tech, and healthcare fields that need shipments fast and sometimes end of day just isn’t soon enough,” said John Miltenis, VP International Marketing, UPS, in a statement. “Our new Midday service is unique in the market and provides our customers with a strong competitive advantage when timing is critical.”
UPS also said that it is expanding its UPS Worldwide Express Service to Lebanon, Lativia, and Lithuania, as well as adding outbound service to Saudi Arabia. And it also said that its UPS Worldwide Express product has been expanded to more than 7,000 postal codes in 57 countries, with guaranteed midday delivery-by 10:30 a.m., 12 p.m., or 2 p.m.-based on destination to 124 countries.
Since UPS Worldwide Express Freight was introduced five years ago, it said shippers have seen benefits in various ways, including: reduced transit times, improved visibility, reduced inventory safety stock, enhanced customer service levels, and shorter order fulfillment cycles.
