by Canadian Shipper

RICHMOND, Va. — UPS Freight has taken steps to improve transit times from Western Canada to points across the US.


In all, UPS Freight is reducing transit times across 340 lanes from Calgary and Edmonton to points throughout the US. The faster transit times include bringing Calgary to cities in Arkansas, Arizona, California, Kansas, Louisiana, South Carolina and New Mexico within four days.


Similarly, one and two days have been shaved off the transit times between Edmonton and US cities along the East Coast from Connecticut to Georgia.


“Improving and expanding our coverage and service capabilities with our country’s largest trading partner is a key element of our overall growth strategy,” said Kevin Hartman, UPS Freight’s senior vice-president for strategy. “We have listened to our customers’ needs and engineered and piloted faster, more efficient network links. We plan to continue to expand and improve our capabilities throughout key markets in North America.”
