This service provides customers with guaranteed delivery on the next possible business day by 10:30 a.m., 12 noon, or 2 p.m., based on destination. UPS said individuals and companies of varying sizes can use it, but it is geared towards ones with time-sensitive international shipment. It is now available in nearly areas making up 96% of global GDP and 93% of real imports. UPS Worldwide Express was first introduced by the company as a branded service in 2007.
The UPS WWE service is especially beneficial for shippers in the retail, high-tech, industrial manufacturing, and healthcare sectors, in addition to consumers using it for urgent global shipments, said UPS. It also said it is leveraged by businesses whose products have a short shelf life and companies producing goods for special events that require last minute order changes.
“We’re excited to announce that customers can now choose UPS to better compete globally with the time-definite services competitive businesses need,” said Nando Cesarone, president, UPS International, in a statement. “By improving time-in-transit and increasing the number of countries served, our customers have more time-of-day delivery options to better meet their customers’ critical needs.”
UPS also noted that new postal codes for UPS Worldwide Express have been added in 65 countries, with time-in-transit improvements made in 24 countries, later pick-up times in 22 European countries, later cut-off times in five countries in Asia, and new Saturday delivery service in seven ISMEA countries. And it also said that its UPS Worldwide Express Freight Midday services has been expanded by 39,000 postal codes in 12 European countries.
These additional postal codes, said UPS, increase the footprint of UPS Worldwide Express by five times, enabling shipments to more than 35 countries and territories, coupled with being able to receive packages from more than 70 countries and territories.
Company officials said that later pick-up times and cut-off times offer shippers with various benefits, including more time to focus on production and order fulfillment.
