UPS offers superfast seafreight

[ March 28, 2013   //   ]

UPS has extended its Preferred Less-Than-Container Load (PLCL) expedited ocean freight service to include the UK to US trade lane, as well as other points in western Europe. According to the operator, PLCL offers journey times up to 40% faster port-to-door than UPS’s standard LCL service.  Customers will also have access to the same visibility technologies used for package shipments.

Steve Kelly, director of ocean freight, UPS Europe, said the new offering would help bridge the gap between the speed of air freight and the economy of ocean freight.

Although best known as an express carrier, UPS says it is one of the top US NVOCCs (Non-Vessel Operating Common Carriers), offering a complete portfolio of ocean freight services.
