ATLANTA—UPS is introducing a new global portfolio for shipping air freight, including an expanded express freight option with guaranteed door-to-door service.
An expanded international express service called UPS Express Freight will more than triple the number of express lanes and provide guaranteed time-definite, overnight-to-three day door-to-door delivery, including routine customs clearance to major global metropolitan areas, according to UPS.
For less time-sensitive global movements, UPS said it will offer two non-guaranteed alternatives: UPS Air Freight Direct—a one-to-three day, airport-to-airport service—and UPS Air Freight Consolidated—a three-to-five day, airport-to-airport service. Both services are available worldwide and offer pickup, delivery and customs clearance as optional features. Freight shipments may move on either UPS or third-party aircraft.
In addition, UPS is introducing automatic online day-specific scheduling for customers whose freight shipments are moving on third-party aircraft.
Finally, UPS has expanded its North American air freight portfolio to include UPS 3 Day Freight, a guaranteed service providing three-to-four-day delivery to the 48 contiguous states and Canada and non-guaranteed alternatives for domestic air freight services.
