UPS Service now available in 117 countries and territories

UPS (NYSE:UPS) today announced the  expansion of its UPS Worldwide Express™ package service to reach 117 countries and territories, providing an earlier delivery option for customers to more locations. UPS delivers more packages internationally than any other carrier.

The UPS Worldwide Express service offers guaranteed delivery on the next business day by 10:30 a.m., noon, or 2 p.m., depending on the destination. In 2016, UPS has introduced the service to 52 additional countries and territories.

“UPS invests in capabilities to expand our connections to global markets to help our customers. This service offers superior global reach for the most urgent shipments,” said Jim Barber, UPS International President. “With this latest expansion, the coverage area totals 117 countries, which comprise nearly 95% of the global gross domestic product, and 96% of real imports.”

Companies in the retail, high-tech, industrial manufacturing and healthcare industries, along with consumers, use the service for urgent global shipments. Businesses with products that have a short shelf life, and companies producing goods for special events requiring last minute order changes, find the speed and reliability of the service especially useful.

World Trade Organization economists predict continued trade growth this year and have even higher expectations for next year. The UPS Worldwide Express service helps facilitate this growth by giving customers more options for important deliveries.

The Dominican Republic has recently become a strong market for U.S. exporters with a Free Trade Agreement between the two countries. Adding Albania and seven additional countries in Europe provides businesses more options and demonstrates UPS’s commitment to facilitate growth in the region.

Myanmar, with a unique geographical position between India and China, has benefitted from improved accessibility to the global marketplace. Average economic growth was boosted by increased trade and investments by more than 7% annually, as the market has the potential to become a much larger player in the global economy.¹

Making the UPS Worldwide Express Service available in more countries is part of the company’s $2 billion investment in European operations through 2019 to expand destinations, improve time in transit, and increase overall capacity.

UPS Worldwide Express is part of the broader UPS Express™ portfolio, which offers the most international guaranteed time-of-day delivery options that include routine customs clearance.
