UPS Inc. is helping U.S. exporters speed international shipments with a new Saturday pick-up service, the company said today.
Businesses can schedule a Saturday pick-up from the United States to 57 international markets and have their shipments processed and shipped on Saturday and delivered as soon as Monday, one day faster than previous UPS time-in-transit, the company said. Destinations include countries across the Americas, Europe and Asia Pacific, with more markets to be added later this year, Atlanta-based UPS also said.
The company says the new service benefits U.S. businesses that want to ship exports six days a week or that need a rush on weekend orders. It expands UPS's existing portfolio of Saturday ground delivery and pick-up services for its U.S. customers.
