Want that package in time for Monday? UPS just might have you covered. The parcel service has announced a nationwide plan for expanding its Saturday package delivery option.
The program -- which began nine months ago in the major markets of Atlanta, Philadelphia, and Los Angeles, amongst others – was meant to keep up with consumers’ increased demand for e-commerce shipments, according to a Bloomberg report.
After finding success in the three test markets, the company said it will expand Saturday ground deliveries and pickup options to 15 more markets in the following month, including areas of New York, Chicago, and Boston. The company plans to expand to approximately 4,700 areas by November encompassing 5,800 cities and towns, the company said.
