July 20, 2016: UPS Worldwide Express expands package service to destinations: Myanmar, Albania and Dominican Republic, in order to reach 117 countries and territories.

The UPS Worldwide Express service offers guaranteed delivery on the next business day by 10:30 a.m., noon, or 2 p.m., depending on the destination.

In 2016, UPS has introduced the service to 52 additional countries and territories.

“UPS invests in capabilities to expand our connections to global markets to help our customers. This service offers superior global reach for the most urgent shipments,” said Jim Barber, president, UPS International.

“With this latest expansion, the coverage area totals 117 countries, which comprise nearly 95 percent of the global gross domestic product, and 96 percent of real imports.”

Companies in the retail, high-tech, industrial manufacturing and healthcare industries, along with consumers, use the service for urgent global shipments.

Businesses with products that have a short shelf life, and companies producing goods for special events requiring last minute order changes, find the speed and reliability of the service especially useful.

The Dominican Republic has recently become a strong market for US exporters with a Free Trade Agreement between the two countries.

Myanmar, with a unique geographical position between India and China, has benefitted from improved accessibility to the global marketplace. Average economic growth was boosted by increased trade and investments by more than 7 percent annually, as the market has the potential to become a much larger player in the global economy.

Making the UPS Worldwide Express Service available in more countries is part of the company’s $2 billion investment in European operations through 2019 to expand destinations, improve time in transit, and increase overall capacity.
