UPS Expands Territory for Early A.M. Delivery
ATLANTA - UPS (NYSE:UPS) has expanded its early morning delivery territory in the United States by almost 3,000 new ZIP Codes, an increase that brings to more than 23,000 the number of ZIP Codes with guaranteed early morning delivery service.
The increase in coverage area for UPS Next Day Air® Early A.M.® means that UPS now delivers early - by 8:30 a.m. - to more businesses and ZIP Codes than any other transportation carrier. In addition, UPS delivers overnight by 10:30 a.m. to more businesses and ZIP Codes than anyone.
With the increase, more than 80 percent of U.S. businesses can receive early morning deliveries, which arrive up to two hours before UPS’s regular guaranteed overnight service at 10:30 a.m. In some areas, arrival time can be guaranteed as early as 8 a.m.
“Early morning delivery is crucial for customers who have urgent deadlines or critical shipments across time zones, from hospitals needing supplies in time for morning surgeries to lawyers needing signed documents for legal proceedings,” said Dale Hayes, UPS’s vice president of U.S. marketing. “Offering more early morning service choices is a fundamental way that UPS is meeting customer needs.”
UPS was the first express carrier to offer early morning delivery service nearly 13 years ago, responding to customers with expanding infrastructures and more complex supply chains as well as more widely dispersed workforces and customers. Saturday service also is available to certain destinations.
A complete list of the UPS Next Day Air Early A.M. ZIP Codes is available on UPS.com. Plans are underway to offer the service to even more ZIP Codes later this year.
