UPS cuts times to eastern Europe

[ February 16, 2017   //   ]

UPS has cut its ground times from the UK to Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Romania, and Slovakia and for express shipments to Lithuania and northwestern Poland following enhancements to its network and infrastructure.

Shipping times are reduced by up to 24 hours following recent time in transit improvements as part of UPS’s $2 billion investment in its European network and infrastructure between 2014 and 2019. UPS has already completed one-third of this network expansion and redesign program, with new facilities announced in Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, The Netherlands, Poland, Sweden and the UK.

In November 2015, UPS announced plans to construct a new £120m, 32,000sq m UK hub package sorting and delivery facility at the DP World London Gateway logistics site, expected to be completed in the summer of 2017.
