UPS to expand Saturday pickups and deliveries to 5,800 US cities by 2018


The world's largest package delivery company and third-party logistics provider, UPS Inc, is expanding its Saturday pickups and deliveries service to nearly 4,700 US cities by the end of 2017.
In an effort to accelerate e-commerce shipping operations, the company said in a statement that it started offering Saturday pickups and deliveries for the first time last year in select markets. It began testing the Saturday delivery programme in Atlanta, Philadelphia and Los Angeles in 2016, and this month will begin broader deployment to 15 additional metropolitan areas including New York, Chicago and Boston. By 2018, the company plans to expand coverage to more than 5,800 cities and towns in the United States.
The expansion will significantly reduce transit times for parcel shipments and create more than 6,000 new jobs at the company, according to UPS, reported American Shipper.
"Online retailers stand to benefit from fewer lost sales due to abandoned online shopping carts, enhanced ship-from-store options and fewer items being out of stock. In the UPS Pulse of the Online Shopper study, retailers report that 46 per cent of customers abandon a shopping cart for reasons that include the shipping time taking too long, and 62 per cent of shoppers select ground delivery.
"The addition of another ground operations day more efficiently utilises our existing delivery network and offers customers an even faster ground delivery solution," added UPS chief marketing officer Teresa Finley. "This is an exciting addition to our suite of services. We are confident that it will help our customers capture market growth."
