ATLANTA, USA, March 27, 2013 – UPS® (NYSE:UPS) today announced the expansion of its Preferred Less-Than-Container Load (PLCL) expedited ocean freight service to include Western Europe.  The move highlights UPS’s competitive advantage in providing customers new options to move goods quickly, yet economically. Additional port access will open in Germany (Hamburg), the Netherlands (Rotterdam), Belgium (Antwerp) and the United Kingdom (London), providing shippers up to 40 percent faster port-to-door delivery time to the U.S. than UPS’s standard LCL service*.  Customers will also have access to the same visibility technologies used for package shipments.
