By DC Velocity Staff

UPS Inc. said today it has expanded its ocean less-than-containerload (LCL) service by adding direct sailings in 130 lanes.

The origin and destination countries cover most of the globe, including ports in Asia, Latin America, Africa, Europe, U.S., the Caribbean, and the Middle East, Atlanta-based UPS said.

LCL services are designed to provide economical ocean freight sailings for companies that don't have enough cargo to fill an entire sea container. "Shippers are looking for alternative service options to limit risk, increase security, and manage inventory more efficiently with reliable transit times," said Steve McMichael, UPS' vice president, global ocean freight services, in a statement.
