UPS (NYSE:UPS) today announced the expansion of its earliest morning package delivery service, UPS Worldwide Express Plus™. By expanding its reach to 28 new countries, including Thailand, and enhancing service to cover more postal codes in 25 existing countries, shippers can reach the top 20 economies in the world earlier than ever before.

Businesses in the industrial manufacturing, automotive, healthcare and retail industries use the service for urgent shipments. The UPS Express Plus™ service offers guaranteed delivery on the next business day as early as 8:00 a.m., depending on the destination.

In the 25 existing countries, shippers can reach more customers in many global business centers. The service is not limited to the largest cities. This expansion now makes the service available in 3,000 additional postal codes in the United Kingdom and 2,000 more postal codes in Canada.

“Companies that require spare parts quickly to keep operations running, and healthcare customers shipping emergency products rely on the speed and dependability of the service,” said Jim Barber, UPS International President. “With this latest expansion, the coverage area comprises nearly 90% of the global gross domestic product and nearly 90% of global real imports.”

“The expansion of UPS Worldwide Express Plus™ will give more production lead time for businesses in Thailand to manage their imports more efficiently, allowing them to fulfill more orders and get their products to market with same-day export capabilities,” said Boon Tiam Tan, Managing Director, UPS Thailand.

“Thailand’s automotive manufacturing industry, which accounts for approximately 12% of the country’s economy, can leverage UPS’s service expansion to create competitive advantages. We know that time is of essence for automotive manufacturers and the UPS Worldwide Express Plus™ enables them to quickly import critical parts used in production lines,” Tan added.
