    Most Robust Lineup of Logistical Options Now Available to Millions of Businesses

    In a second expansion in just nine months, UPS has extended its competitive advantage by enhancing its coverage area for early morning deliveries.

    For the critical 8 a.m. delivery option, the enhancement has allowed UPS to extend even more its advantage of delivering to more ZIP codes and more businesses than anyone. UPS also increased the number of ZIP codes it serves by 10:30 a.m. with its regular express service, another arena in which UPS already was serving more ZIP codes and businesses than any other carrier.

    The latest U.S. coverage expansion involved more than 2,600 Early A.M. and Next Day Air ZIP codes. More than 80 percent of all U.S. businesses now can receive guaranteed early morning UPS deliveries.

    "Customers tell us every second counts," said Alan Gershenhorn, UPS's chief sales and marketing officer. "Take healthcare laboratories, for example. Every package represents a patient and getting results back faster is critical. Earlier deliveries can be the customer experience difference, and they provide all companies a real competitive advantage. Businesses know they can depend on UPS for fast and reliable service."

    Other types of business benefitting from earlier urgent deliveries include automotive, industrial manufacturing, high-tech and professional service companies with a need for early-morning delivery of equipment, parts and documents. The larger coverage area provides the most robust lineup of time-of-day delivery choices for these business customers.
