UPS Inc. is helping U.S. exporters speed international shipments with a new Saturday pickup service, the company said yesterday.
Businesses can schedule a Saturday pickup 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 pickup services for its U.S. customers.
