UPS has announced the expansion of its UPS Worldwide Express Freight service in 12 new origin and nine new destination countries for urgent, time-sensitive and high-value international heavyweight shipments.

Countries adding destination service include: Chile, Indonesia, Israel, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, New Zealand, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Vietnam.

The service offers faster guaranteed palletised shipments, over 150 lbs. (70 kg.), in more lanes than any other carrier. Delivery is door-to-door and day-definite, with customs brokerage service included. Saturday deliveries are available to select U.S. and Canadian postal codes.
