More sellers in the U.S. will now be able to use UPS' Next Day Air Early A.M. service to get packages to customers by early the next morning, company officials announced Monday.
UPS has expanded the number of zip codes in which it offers the Early A.M. delivery service, and has improved the service in existing locations, according to the company. With the expansion, the service is now said to be available in three-quarters of the U.S.
The Next Day Air Early A.M. service ensures shipments arrive by 8 a.m. in all major U.S. cities, and that packages to the rest of the country, including Alaska, arrive at their destinations by 9 a.m.
"UPS understands that, more than ever before, companies are seeking competitive advantage," says Myron Gray, president of U.S. operations at UPS. "Earlier deliveries help our customers across the country meet urgent deadlines faster."
Merchants can get a complete list of the zip codes in which the Early A.M. service is available on UPS.com.
The expansion is the latest enhancement UPS has made to its global air network. According to the company, it was the first carrier to offer early-morning delivery service 15 years ago.
