UPS Freight Improves Transit Times for Service to Michigan, Wisconsin


RICHMOND - In its continuing drive to improve service, UPS Freight (NYSE:UPS) today announced accelerated transit times for large sections of Wisconsin and Michigan.

The enhancements by the heavy freight arm of UPS include next-day service between new direct points in Wisconsin and Michigan linking Chicago, Minneapolis and Milwaukee.

“Today’s improvements extend the reach of our next-day service and shorten transit times for central and western Wisconsin and Michigan’s Upper Peninsula,” said Todd Holt, vice president for line transportation. “We are constantly working to improve the network to meet the expectations of today’s customers, who are seeking nothing less than the best out of their transportation provider.”

The 480 ZIP codes covered by the new, faster times represent the single largest number of codes affected in a single day’s change by UPS Freight this year. In February, UPS Freight announced improved transit times on 2,250 lanes affecting customers throughout Texas and southern Oklahoma. That enhancement covered some 385 Zip codes.

In all, UPS Freight has reduced transit times on some 15,500 lanes over the last 21 months.

As in previous enhancements, the new transit times will be covered by UPS Freight’s time-definite guaranteed service for all shipments moving under the current 560 Tariff. In addition, enjoying the same capabilities as UPS small package customers, UPS Freight’s LTL customers can manage, track and process their shipments through UPS WorldShip and Quantum View Manage technology.

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
