UPS has expanded its Worldwide Express package service to reach 117 countries and territories, providing an earlier delivery option for customers to more locations. The UPS Worldwide Express service offers guaranteed delivery on the next business day by 10:30am, 12.00pm, or 2:00pm, depending on the destination.

One of the new destinations includes the Dominican Republic, which has recently become a strong market for US exporters with a Free Trade Agreement between the two countries. UPS also added Albania and seven other European countries, as well as Myanmar in Asia, which recently benefitted from improved accessibility to the global marketplace. So far this year, UPS has introduced its Worldwide Express service to 52 additional countries and territories.

Jim Barber, international president, UPS, said, “UPS invests in capabilities to expand our connections to global markets to help our customers. This service offers superior global reach for the most urgent shipments. With this latest expansion, the coverage area totals 117 countries, which comprise nearly 95% of the global gross domestic product and 96% of real imports.”

The service is popular with the retail, high-tech, industrial manufacturing and healthcare industries for global shipment of urgent items. The speed of the service is particularly useful for businesses that produce products with a short shelf life, or goods for special events that require last-minute order changes.
