Bangkok--16 Feb--Ogilvy Public Relations
Service now available in 35 countries by 12 p.m. or 2 p.m.

UPS (NYSE:UPS) announced the introduction of UPS Worldwide Express Freight(TM) Midday, an extension of the current UPS Worldwide Express Freight service, offering a commit time of 12 p.m. or 2 p.m. from all 71 origin countries to 35 key destination countries that represent over two-thirds of global GDP.

This addition to the UPS Worldwide Express(TM) package portfolio provides guaranteed, time-definite delivery for urgent, international palletized shipments over 150 lbs. Delivery is door-to-door in as few as 1-3 days, with customs brokerage included. UPS Worldwide Express Freight services include many of the same features as UPS Worldwide Express package service, allowing customers to leverage UPS speed, reliability, and visibility to reach global markets faster, now before 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. "Our new Midday service is unique in the market and provides our customers with a strong competitive advantage when timing is critical."

"Our time-definite solutions allow UPS customers to be more efficient in meeting the needs of their customers across key trading lanes," said Russell Reed, Managing Director of UPS Thailand. "This expansion will help Thai businesses be more competitive by delivering market-leading service through UPS's enhanced smart global logistics network."

Also new for 2018, UPS Worldwide Express Freight service has expanded to Lebanon, Latvia, and Lithuania and added outbound service to Saudi Arabia.

The UPS(R) air network is one of the world's largest with customs clearance capabilities that include over 80 years of experience and offices in more than 60 countries. This combination allows for UPS's fastest palletized scheduled day-definite, door-to-door delivery in 71 origin and 67 destination countries and territories*, including:

  • One or two business days to the U.S. from Asia Pacific, Europe and the Americas*
  • One or two business days from Hong Kong to the U.S., Asia Pacific, Europe and Canada*
  • Two or three business days to Europe from Asia Pacific, the U.S. and the Americas*

UPS also announced expansion of the UPS Worldwide Express(TM) product to more than 7,000 postal codes in 57 countries. UPS Worldwide Express service offers guaranteed midday delivery (by 10:30 a.m., 12 p.m., or 2 p.m. depending on the destination) to 124 countries globally. It is a part of a portfolio of products that offer global express delivery in 1-3 days depending on the destination. UPS Express(TM) service offers guaranteed midday delivery, while Express Plus offers guaranteed morning delivery, and UPS Express Saver offers guaranteed end of day delivery, all with the same days in transit.
