UPS have tripled the coverage offered under their Worldwide Expedited ® service for international shipments. The new reach now provides delivery to more than 220 countries and territories in two to five business days.

The Worldwide Expedited service offers a more economical, less time sensitive service than the Worldwide Express service, in the hope that the lower price will encourage the retail, consumer goods, industrial manufacturing and high-tech industry customers to consider the service.

"UPS Worldwide Expedited offers many of the same benefits customers get from our Worldwide Express service, including fast and efficient door-to-door delivery, tracking visibility and quick customs clearance provided by UPS's customs brokerage," said John Sutthoff, UPS vice president of international marketing. "Retail and consumer goods, industrial manufacturing and high-tech industry customers are finding the service especially attractive for the reliability and visibility supported by UPS's best in class IT and operating infrastructure."

According to UPS, the volatile economic conditions of the last few years underscore the reason why companies should look to the global marketplace for stability and growth opportunities.

"As global trade and e-commerce continue to expand, our customers will need access to new markets combined with the flexibility to ship their products in an economical manner," stated Sutthoff. "UPS's Worldwide Expedited expansion enables this access and will help companies of any size - importers and exporters alike - participate in this dynamic growth."
