UPS Expands LCL Ocean Freight Throughout Asia

UPS is expanding its Preferred LCL Ocean Freight Service to 10 additional Asian ports, thus taking on a bigger role as NVO.


The less than container load service provides up to 40 percent faster port-to-door delivery to the United States.


UPS just began offering the service to customers shipping to the United States from the Chinese ports of Shanghai, Shenzhen, Ningbo and Xiamen. The service will expand to origins in Busan, South Korea; and Taipei in March of this year and to Bangkok, Thailand; Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam; Singapore; and Hong Kong in April.


After arriving at a West coast port, Preferred LCL ocean shipments are moved through an expedited UPS North American ground network ordinarily used for air freight shipments. This network cuts eight to 16 days of transit time off the current standard service for East coast deliveries.
