UPS has announced the expansion of its UPS Worldwide Express package service to 23 additional countries and territories. According to the announcement, the expansion is intended to create an earlier guaranteed-delivery option for customers in locations that previously had only end-of-day guarantees.
UPS Worldwide Express service offers guaranteed delivery on the next possible business day by 10:30 a.m., noon or 2 p.m. depending on the destination. This move follows last year’s expansion of the service.
Nick Basford, Vice President of International Marketing at UPS, said, “The latest expansion covers growing markets like Colombia, Saudi Arabia and Vietnam, which are increasingly important to global trade.” He added, “Colombia has become a key market for U.S. exporters due to the Free Trade Agreement between the two countries. Saudi Arabia is a large economy with a growing middle class. And Vietnam is emerging as a manufacturing powerhouse in the Asia Pacific region. UPS Worldwide Express service now gives customers more options to reach these and other key global markets.”
The service, now available to 88 countries and territories, is part of the broader UPS Express portfolio, which offers three guaranteed time-of-day delivery options that include customs clearance. The UPS Express portfolio features Express Plus for early-morning delivery to 27 countries, Express for midday delivery to 88 countries and territories and Express Saver for end-of-day delivery to 220 countries and territories.
The expansion of the service covers the following countries; Saudi Arabia, Oman, Morocco, Tunisia, Sri Lanka, Colombia, Guatemala, Honduras, Ecuador, Bermuda, Trinidad & Tobago, Jamaica, Bahamas, Barbados, St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Lucia, Ukraine, Serbia, Jersey, Guernsey, Montenegro, Vietnam and Macau.
