UPS Freight Putting Texas, Southern Okla. in Fast Lane


RICHMOND.- UPS Freight, the heavy freight arm of UPS (NYSE:UPS), today announced it is improving transit times on 2,250 lanes affecting customers throughout Texas and southern Oklahoma.

“The network improvements announced today extend the reach of our one-day, intra-Texas service to include direct service to more than 385 Zip codes while at the same time improving transit times between Texas and Oklahoma and major markets in the U.S.” said Todd Holt, vice president, Line Transportation.

Examples of the faster transit times include next-day service for Corpus Christi, Victoria and Kingsville to Houston and Dallas. The expanded next-day umbrella also covers movements between Witchita Falls, San Angelo and Lawton, Okla., to Dallas, Houston and Austin.

Among other Texas cities realizing faster transit times are Pampa, Amarillo, Brownwood and Del Rio. The improved transit times further allow customers in Lawton, Abilene, San Angelo and Witchita Falls to reach Atlanta in two days and Charlotte, N.C., in three.

The new transit times will be covered by UPS Freight’s time-definite guaranteed service for all shipments moving under the current 560 Tariff. The shipments also will enjoy the tracking visibility that comes with UPS Freight’s state-of-the-art technology.

The latest enhancements are part of a long-term strategy to boost the value proposition for UPS Freight customers through faster transit times, technology and reliability. To that end, UPS Freight has reduced transit time on some 15,000 lanes over the last two years.

UPS Freight is the only U.S. carrier that extends customers the ability to manage, track and process both small package and LTL freight using the same software - UPS Worldship and Quantum View Manage.

“At a time when the economy demands every transportation decision be made with the utmost care and consideration, the experience and reliability of UPS and UPS Freight continue to make our company the preferred choice,” said UPS Freight President Jack Holmes.

UPS Freight, one of the largest less-than-truckload carriers in the United States and a leading truckload service provider, serves customers throughout North America, Puerto Rico, Guam and the U.S. Virgin Islands. For more information, visit
