“With 85% of Mexico’s total exports bound for the US, it’s important to give businesses a range of reliable shipping choices that cover this busy North American trade lane,” said Griselda Hernandez, UPS Mexico country manager, as the company launched its northbound small-package service.

UPS said it was connecting the company’s domestic networks in Mexico and the US to offer a ground service between the two countries that covers every address in Mexico and the continental US. Packages shipped via UPS Standard will reach their final destinations within three to seven days, said the company. Other benefits UPS cited include a money-back guarantee, complete package visibility and free–often same-day–pick-up service.

UPS pointed out it has operated in Mexico for 20 years, increasing its network to include 70 operating centers and more than 2,000 employees. The UPS country headquarters is located in Mexico City.
