Atlanta-based logistics giant United Parcel Service (UPS) has announced a major expansion to its ocean less-than-container (LCL) service with the addition of direct sailings in 130 lanes.

The origin and destination countries cover most of the globe, including ports in Asia, Latin America, Africa, Europe, U.S., the Caribbean, and the Middle East.

“This network expansion demonstrates our ongoing investments to continually build out our network so we can meet or exceed customer demands,” said Steve McMichael, UPS vice president of global ocean freight services.

“Shippers are looking for alternative service options to limit risk, increase security, and manage inventory more efficiently with reliable transit times. We provide end-to-end support to help our customers keep promises to their customers,” he continued.

Customers who do not have enough cargo to fill an entire ocean freight container can still access cost-effective ocean transportation using UPS’s extensive network of capabilities and freight facilities, the supply chain management company said.

“Customers benefit from an economical way to transport goods versus other modes of transportation while gaining access to a broad portfolio of value-added and alternative services,” it added.

These services include cargo insurance and financing solutions, customs brokerage services, supplier management, sea-air service, UPS Preferred LCL, and China-Europe rail service.
