Richmond, November 17, 2010

In its latest round of enhanced transit times, UPS Freight, the heavy freight arm of UPS (NYSE:UPS), has again improved transit times between U.S. cities and Calgary and Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.

With a focus on improving service from the Southwest and Western U.S., UPS Freight now offers two-day service from Denver and Las Vegas to the Calgary and Edmonton markets. In addition, the Dallas Metroplex and southern California now have three-day service to Calgary and Edmonton.

“These lane enhancements further reinforce UPS Freight’s strong commitment to improving the overall value proposition for cross-border LTL shipments,” said UPS Freight President Jack Holmes. “These latest moves bring the total number of lane improvements across the Canadian/U.S. border to more than 1,100 in just the last two years, all backed by our no-fee delivery guarantee for customers shipping on our current 525 tariff.”

In addition, UPS Freight customers can process, manage and track their cross-border LTL shipments through UPS WorldShip and Quantum View Manage technology.
