UPS Places Kansas Freight in Fast Lane

UPS Freight will begin offering next-day service from Manhattan, Salina and Marysville to Kansas City, St. Louis, Wichita, Tulsa and Des Moines.
UPS Freight is the heavy freight division of UPS. It has enhanced its national network by reducing transit times and offering more direct routing to and from northeast Kansas to more than 70 cities from California to Virginia.
Overall, the company has reduced transit times on some 16,000 lanes over the past two years.
“UPS is on a path to create a combination of reliability, technology and speed that no other competitor can match,” said UPS Freight President Jack Holmes. “Reducing transit times, guaranteeing deliveries and using advanced tracking technology all combine to provide maximum value for our customers.”
As a result of the direct routing, Houston, Nashville and New Orleans all fall into an expanded two-day window for the three northeast Kansas locales. In addition, freight earmarked for the area from as far away as Los Angeles and San Diego in the west and Norfolk and Richmond in the east will arrive within three business days.
