UPS has expanded UPS Worldwide Express and UPS Express Plus, part of its international suite of shipping services that guarantees time- and day-definite delivery for urgent shipments, across 40 countries. UPS express services are now available to businesses across 140 countries and territories, reaching the top 20 countries by GDP with morning delivery.

The latest expansion offers morning or midday service for companies looking to improve time to market, speed inventory replenishment and meet urgent needs for time-sensitive shipments to international growth areas around the world, the company said in a press release.

Businesses need guaranteed time-of-day delivery they can count on. UPS is growing its express services footprint within key markets by adding new postal codes in 14 European countries, as well as other markets in Asia, the Americas and the Indian Sub-continent. In the Middle East and Africa, five new markets are now connected to the UPS express delivery network: Algeria, Namibia, Reunion (UPS Worldwide Express), and Nigeria and Qatar (UPS Worldwide Express Plus).

For customers with urgent freight needs, UPS Worldwide Express Freight now offers time-definite delivery of international palletised shipments to nearly 8,000 new postal codes in 11 countries, including high-growth markets such as Russia, Nigeria, and Vietnam. The additional postal codes increase the footprint of this guaranteed service, enabling shipments to over 76 countries and territories and the ability to receive packages from over 82 countries and territories.

UPS customers can also take advantage of robust customs brokerage services in these newly expanded areas. As one of the world’s largest customs brokers, UPS helps customers navigate changing regulations, maintain compliance and keep shipments moving smoothly through customs and across borders. The UPS customs brokerage team has more than 80 years of experience, more than 400 import and export clearance locations, and over 6 million customs entries filed each year in the US.

“Cross-border trade continues to present growth opportunities for us and for customers of all sizes. By expanding the reach of our industry-leading express services, we’re better connecting our customers to where we see continued growth potential. Our time-sensitive services are faster, they speed up time-to-market in high-growth economies and they offer another way for our customers to optimise their cross-border supply chains. Every advantage counts, especially for smaller businesses starting out. Their success is what drives commerce and creates jobs – globally,” Nando Cesarone, president of UPS International said.

“Increasing the speed to market for our customers in emerging economies, especially small businesses, means that they are better positioned to compete on equal footing with competitors anywhere in the world. Our customers depend on the speed, reliability and visibility that UPS express services provide to help their urgent, time-sensitive shipments reach high-growth potential markets in Europe, Asia, and beyond,” Jean-Francois Condamine, UPS president of growth and emerging markets said.
