Qatar is among the nine countries included in UPS Worldwide Express Freight’s global expansion, it was announced.
The other countries include Bahrain, Bangladesh, Kuwait, Malta, Morocco, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, and Tunisia. With the eight countries added within the past year, the service is now offered in 66 origin and 64 destination countries and territories.
UPS said the service is designed for urgent, time-sensitive, and high-value international heavyweight shipments over 70kg, making it ideal for product launches, inventory shortages, and equipment failure replacement parts.
Jean-Francois Condamine, president of UPS ISMEA, said: “We are pleased to see such a growth. In the emerging markets, it reflects the fulfilling of a critical market need. We are thrilled to have commenced operations in these countries. In expanding our services to our customers, we reinforce our commitment to the growing logistics sector in the region.”
