Rate Change Information
Effective December 28, 2015*, the published rates for our services will increase. This supports ongoing expansion and capabilities enhancements, as we strive to maintain the high service levels you expect from UPS.
As you look toward the year to come, here are some new enhancements that can help you and your customers:
- Reach more customers earlier — We are improving our delivery coverage again, and are enhancing UPS Next Day Air® Early service by expanding to nearly 4,500 additional ZIP Codes™. We offer overnight delivery by 8:00 a.m. to major cities in the 48 contiguous states and by 8:30 a.m., 9:00 a.m. or 9:30 a.m. to most other cities in the U.S. Additional extended delivery locations will be guaranteed up to 2:00 p.m.
- International expansions to serve you better — We have recently expanded UPS Worldwide Express® service to more than 41,000 new postal codes around the world, creating earlier guaranteed delivery options for customers in addition to the end-of-day guarantee offered by UPS Worldwide Saver® service. We already deliver more packages internationally and offer more guaranteed package delivery options than any other carrier.
- Convenience and control for your customers — We have significantly expanded our UPS Access Point™ network. By the end of 2015, we expect to have more than 8,000 UPS Access Point locations in select U.S. cities and 22,000 globally. These local businesses – like The UPS Store® locations and local grocery stores – offer flexible pickup for consumers who are not home to receive their eligible deliveries and serve as convenient drop-off points for eligible prepaid and return packages.
- An enhanced supply chain portfolio — We acquired Coyote Logistics, adding large-scale truckload brokerage services to our portfolio, continuing to expand our services from multi-modal freight shipments to small-package delivery.
