UPS Express Freight more than triples the number of express lanes currently served and provides guaranteed time-definite, overnight-to-three day door-to-door delivery including routine customs clearance to major global metropolitan areas, says UPS.
As part of a reconfigured air service offering, UPS said it would also offer two non-guaranteed alternatives. Air Freight Direct is a one- to three-day airport-to-airport service. UPS Air Freight Consolidated is a three- to five-day airport-to-airport service. Both are available worldwide with pick up, delivery, and customs clearance as optional features.
Freight shipments could move on UPS or third-party aircraft, the company said.
