UPS expands ocean freight service in 130 new trade lanes

UPS has announced a major expansion to its ocean Less-Than-Container Load (LCL) service with the addition of direct sailings in 130 lanes.

The expansion includes ports in Asia, Latin America, Africa, Europe, U.S. the Caribbean and the Middle East.

In a statement issued yesterday (7 June), Steve McMichael, UPS Vice President, Global Ocean Freight Services, commented: “This network expansion demonstrates our ongoing investments to continually build out our network so we can meet or exceed customer demands.

“Shippers are looking for alternative service options to limit risk, increase security, and manage inventory more efficiently with reliable transit times. We provide end-to-end support to help our customers keep promises to their customers.”
