MISSISSAUGA, Ont. -- UPS has announced a new express airfreight service, UPS Worldwide ExpressFreight, for urgent, time-sensitive and high-value international heavyweight shipments. The new service is an extension of the UPS Worldwide Express package portfolio and is designed to offer customers a seamless experience between shipping express package and express freight.
Customers now can ship pallets over 150 lbs. in the same fashion as packages exclusively within UPS's global air network from 37 origins to 41 destination countries and territories. The guaranteed, day-definite, door-to-door service features 1-2 day shipping from international origins to Canada, as well as 1-2 day shipping from major Canadian cities to international destinations.
UPS Worldwide Express Freight service offers many of the same features as UPS's Worldwide Express package service, including automated shipment preparation, online tracking and proactive notification technology. In addition, both express freight and package shipments are consolidated into one bill.
"Businesses are not alone when managing the complexities of the supply chain," adds Jim Ramsay, vice-president of international freight forwarding at UPS. "Our expertise and services are available to help businesses of all sizes compete and grow globally."
