UPS recently launched a simplified global portfolio for shipping air freight, including an expanded express freight option with guaranteed door-to- door service.

The new air freight portfolio features an expanded international express service called UPS Express Freight. It more than triples the number of express lanes currently served and provides guaranteed time-definite, overnight-to-three day door-to-door delivery including routine customs clearance to major global metropolitan areas, the company said. For less time-sensitive global movements, UPS off ers two non-guaranteed alternatives: UPS Air Freight Direct is a one-to-three day airport-to- airport service, and UPS Air Freight Consolidated is a three-to-five day airport-to-airport service. Both services are available worldwide and off er pickup, delivery and customs clearance as options.

Freight will move on either UPS or third-party aircraft for extra flexibility, it said.

“The reinvention of our global air freight portfolio positions us well in the marketplace,” said Alan Gershenhorn, senior vice president for worldwide sales and marketing. “We can provide the global reach, flexible scheduling and competitive pricing that businesses need and expect from us. Our customers gain more flexibility and control over their freight shipments without sacrificingsingle-source accountability.
