UPS Places Kansas Freight in Fast Lane


RICHMOND.- UPS Freight, the heavy freight division of UPS (NYSE: UPS), has again enhanced its national network, reducing transit times and offering more direct routing to and from northeast Kansas to more than 70 cities from California to Virginia.

Overall, the company has reduced transit times on some 16,000 lanes over the past two years.

“UPS is on a path to create a combination of reliability, technology and speed that no other competitor can match,” said UPS Freight President Jack Holmes. “Reducing transit times, guaranteeing deliveries and using advanced tracking technology all combine to provide maximum value for our customers.”

The expedited transit times will mean next-day service from Manhattan, Salina and Marysville to Kansas City, St. Louis, Wichita, Tulsa and Des Moines.

As a result of the direct routing, Houston, Nashville and New Orleans all fall into an expanded two-day window for the three northeast Kansas locales. In addition, freight earmarked for the area from as far away as Los Angeles and San Diego in the west and Norfolk and Richmond in the east will arrive within three business days.

As in previous enhancements, the new transit times are covered by UPS Freight’s free, time-definite guaranteed service for all shipments moving under the current 560 Tariff. In addition, freight customers can take advantage of the same capabilities UPS small package customers enjoy to manage, track and process their shipments through UPS Worldship and Quantum View technology.
