Targeting 30 of the most active trading markets, UPS will begin offering U.S. air shippers three “time of day” delivery options. Its Worldwide Express Plus product will offer 8:30 a.m. or 9:00 a.m. delivery depending on destination. Worldwide Express will provide 10:30 a.m. or 12:00 noon delivery, again depending on destination. And, Worldwide Saver will provide guaranteed end-of-day delivery.
Track and trace capabilities will include proactive alerts if shipments do not arrive by their committed delivery deadline due to customs holds, weather delays or for any other reason, says UPS.
