UPS has expanded its Worldwide Express Freight service to Bahrain, Bangladesh, Kuwait, Malta, Morocco, Pakistan, Qatar, Sri Lanka and Tunisia.
According to UPS, the service is designed for time-sensitive and high-value international shipments weighing more than 70kg, and is particularly suitable for product launches, inventory shortages and equipment-failure replacement parts.
“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,” said Bill Seward, president of US international exports. “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.”
The service is now offered in 66 origin and 64 destination countries and territories, according to UPS.
