UPS is expanding its UPS Worldwide Express Freight service to nine new countries for urgent, time-sensitive and high-value international shipments over 70 kilogrammes.

The service is now available in Bahrain, Bangladesh, Kuwait, Malta, Morocco, Pakistan, Qatar, Sri Lanka and Tunisia. UPS says that the number of companies using the service has increased 250 per cent since its launch in 2013. The company says benefits of the service include reduced transit times, improved visibility, reduced inventory safety stock, enhanced customer service levels and shorter order fulfilment times.

UPS president US international exports, Bill Seward says: “Companies in the healthcare, retail and automotive industries have grown their international volume, 18, 11 and five times more, respectively, using UPS Worldwide Express Freight service than their peers over the last three years.”

“The growth of the UPS Worldwide Express Freight service in a relatively short time period shows it is fulfilling a critical market need for a reliable, urgent heavy freight international shipping service. We will continue to invest in service expansions as customer and industry needs evolve.”
