UPS Freight improves transit times on another 1,200 traffic lanes

UPS Freight has improved transit times on more than 1,200 traffic lanes originating in the US Midwest, Northeast and Mid-Atlantic.

This marks the second time in just four months that UPS' s heavy freight division has enhanced its network.

According to UPS Freight president Jack Holmes, these enhancements are part of a continual process to add value for customers by improving the velocity of the UPS network.

In May, UPS Freight improved transit times on nearly 1,000 traffic lanes originating in metropolitan areas in the Southwest and Southeast to points across the US. During the past eighteen months, UPS has reduced transit times on more than 10,000 lanes.

New two-day lanes now in effect include Chicago-Dallas, Boston-St. Louis and Philadelphia-Miami. The enhancements also expand the next-day footprint of UPS Freight. Shipments moving from Cincinnati to Memphis and Columbus, Ohio, to Charlotte, North Carolina will now deliver overnight.

Other originating major markets with reduced transit times include Cleveland, Indianapolis, Milwaukee, New York City and Newark, New Jersy.

The faster transit times will bring cities as far as southern California, Arizona and Utah to within two and three days of these originating cities.
