The faster transit times carry the same on-time, no-fee guarantee offered by UPS Freight on shipments originating and destined for points served by the company's service centers in Calgary, Edmonton, London, Moncton, Montreal, Toronto, Vancouver, Windsor and Winnipeg.
The two-day southbound service matches the company's two-day northbound service initiated last year and follows improvements in UPS Freight's operating network and cross-border structure.
The new two-day transit times include Montreal to Milwaukee, Rockford, Ill., and St. Louis. Toronto now provides two-day service to markets in Georgia and North and South Carolina, including Atlanta, Augusta, Charlotte, Charleston and Savannah.
"Canada is the United States' largest trading partner and these expedited service lanes are important to both countries," said Jack Holmes, UPS Freight president.
UPS Freight's Canadian service includes a pre-arrival customs system that speeds clearance at border crossings, minimizes delays and accelerates transit times. The technology enables the electronic transmission of customs documentation; complete online tracking from origin to destination, with instant access to all customs documents; notifying customers of any customs delays with alerts, and 24-hour access to all shipping information.
