UPS expands TradeDirect to air

United Parcel Service on Monday announced the expansion of its Trade Direct services by adding air capability to the options for moving goods into the United States.

UPS Trade Direct services specialize in helping to move shipments directly from international factories through customs to multiple U.S. locations, eliminating the need for warehouse stops at the border for repackaging.

UPS previously had launched Trade DirectOcean and Trade DirectCross Border surface services. The Trade Direct Air is intended to be a speedier option for shippers.

UPS plans to expand its Trade Direct products to handle imports to and exports from other international regions. Trade Direct Cross Border already is available for U.S. exports to Canada and Mexico.
