UPS announced Tuesday, July 28, an economical ground option for shipping small packages from Mexico to the United States. Known as UPS Standard, the ground service offers business customers a new tool for managing their transportation costs for less-urgent packages. It launched on July 13.
“UPS Standard is a perfect complement to a UPS service portfolio that provides customers multiple transportation options for their express and deferred shipments,” says Griselda Hernandez, UPS Mexico country manager. “With 85 percent of Mexico’s total exports bound for the U.S., it’s important to give businesses a range of reliable shipping choices that cover this busy North American trade lane.”
By connecting the company’s domestic networks in Mexico and the United States, UPS says it is able to offer a ground service between the two countries that covers every address in Mexico and the continental United States. Packages shipped via UPS Standard will reach their final destinations within 3 to 7 days, according to the company; other benefits include a money-back guarantee, complete package visibility and free — often same-day — pick-up service.
UPS has operated in Mexico for 20 years, increasing its network to include 70 operating centers and more than 2,000 employees while expanding its extensive portfolio of service options. The UPS country headquarters is located in Mexico City.
