UPS Saturday Ground Package Delivery Coming to a Home Near You
A recent article in the Wall Street Journal and covered by several other news organizations, reports that UPS is planning to roll out a new package delivery program in April that will see about 50% of the US population receiving Ground packages delivered on Saturdays. Not only that, but UPS will also be enhancing its pick up service and package sorting operations on Saturday as well. The package sorting operations on Saturday will surely help UPS relieve the pressure of moving packages when Monday morning rolls around.
These new services are obviously a direct result of the tremendous customer demand who “want their package now!” And, UPS knows exactly what its customers want so it will make a major investment to implement these services as a way to continue to grow its business, but more importantly to grow it profitably.
And of course, there will be an added cost to shippers for this new Saturday Ground package delivery service, so shipper’s get ready to dig deeper into your pockets. How much will these Saturday Ground package delivery fees cost; well that remains to be seen but rest assured we will hear what those fees will be shortly.
