UPS Worldwide Express Freight is expanding its service to nine new countries: Bahrain, Bangladesh, Kuwait, Malta, Morocco, Pakistan, Qatar, Sri Lanka and Tunisia. Within the past year, UPS also added eight additional countries, meaning that the service is now offered in 66 origin and 64 destination countries and territories.
“Companies in the healthcare, retail and automotive industries have grown their international volume, 18, 11 and five times more, respectively, using UPS Worldwide Express Freight service than their peers over the last three years,” said Bill Seward, president of U.S. International Exports for UPS.
UPS also noted that its shopping data showed Mexico-to-U.S. trade grew from the fifth-most used lane in 2013 to the second most used lane in 2015, with the China-to-U.S. lane taking first place. The carrier noted that, “this progression is likely due to a growth in manufacturing in Mexico, increases in e-commerce and the rise in intermodal cross-border shipments between the countries.”
Earlier this year, UPS also said it has strengthened its U.S.-Mexico cross-border trade services to support growth within that trade lane.
