UPS Expands ZIP Codes for Early Morning DeliveryUnited Parcel Service expanded its U.S. premium early morning delivery territory yesterday, adding 7,200 new ZIP codes. The shipper said it now offers early morning delivery to 19,200 ZIP codes nationwide.
More than 77 percent of the population now can receive UPS Next Day Air Early A.M. deliveries up to two hours before regular guaranteed overnight service, or as early as 8 a.m. in some areas.
UPS, Atlanta, said the guaranteed service provides an option for both urgent-need shipments and daily early morning stock replenishment. Saturday service is available to some destinations.
Shipment to the expanded destinations for UPS Next Day Air Early A.M. can be processed on Web-based systems such as UPS Internet Shipping and UPS CampusShip.
Next week, 400,000 installed UPS WorldShip proprietary systems will automatically add the new ZIP code destinations, and UPS-compatible systems will be available for upgrades.
