UPS My Choice expanded in time for Christmas
UPS WorldShip have announced the global expansion of UPS My Choice service to 96 additional countries and territories, bringing the total to 112 served. With the entrance into countries and regions in Africa, Asia Pacific and the Indian Subcontinent, Caribbean and Central and South America, Middle East and Oceania, and an expansion in Europe, this package-delivery management service will be in the world’s major e-commerce markets in time for the key holiday shipping season.
This is significant as UPS are one of the few true global carriers who can delivery door to door around the world. Unlike many overseas carriers that deliver into the UK with ParcelForce carrying out the in-country delivery, UPS handle the delivery themselves and it’s the same around the world.
With the expansion of UPS My Choice, and easy availability of UPS services through eBay delivery powered by Shutl and various parcel booking services, it’s a great choice for retailers who want to make tracking easy for their global customers.
“Every UPS My Choice user will have access to e-mail notifications that a delivery is on its way, an alert the day before delivery with a delivery-window estimate, notification that package is out for delivery, and a notification that delivery is completed. With this expansion, shippers can benefit from fewer customer inquiries and missed deliveries, while consumers enjoy increased visibility and, in many cases, the opportunity to adjust delivery dates and locations.”
– Nando Cesarone, President, UPS International
The global expansion includes actionable text alerts in many countries and territories for greater convenience when managing deliveries. In countries where technology allows delivery change options, users can route packages to UPS Access Point locations, send them to another address or opt for delivery on another day. There are currently more than 28,000 UPS Access Point locations worldwide, which include independently owned and operated businesses that offer customers a convenient and safe place to pick up shipments on their schedule.

Why bother? It’s utterly useless. Estimated Delivery Time gives a 4 hour slot and they never arrive even during that wide slot. Other couriers have overtaken them.
UPS is the only courier I know requiring to have an account to have a delivery time estimate.
