UPS announces expansion of Worldwide Express in three new markets as well as its enhancement of Worldwide Express Freight Midday in Oman.

The expansion into the Indian Subcontinent, the Middle East and Africa, comes as part of the company's role as Official Logistics Partner of Expo 2020. The event – which is expected to receive 25 million visitors – has 194 participating countries who UPS is helping to: “minimise the need for excess inventory with guaranteed on-time delivery and improve cash flow, save time and increase efficiency and productivity by using one shipping, tracking and billing system for both packages and freight as well as better meeting their customers’ critical needs with more time-of-day delivery options and an increased number of services that improve end-to-end customer experience,” says UPS.

This latest expansion will help businesses of all sizes in the Middle East, Africa and India to cross borders and international customers capture growth opportunities in this dynamic region,” said Rami Suleiman, president for UPS ISMEA. “By delivering faster, earlier and expanding our reach, we help customers in these high growth markets increase their value, strengthen their competitive advantage and stand out on the global stage. From small businesses to Expo 2020 Dubai participant countries, UPS continues providing importers and exporters with greater flexibility to meet their time-sensitive requests.”

With the addition of three new markets UPS Worldwide Express is now available in 157 countries.
