UPS shortens T.O.-Montreal transit times

TORONTO — UPS Freight has stretched its two-day delivery network from Montreal and Toronto as far south as Atlanta and St. Louis.

It is the latest development stemming from an initiative launched last year to reduce nearly 1,000 transit times between Canadian points and the United States.

The new two-day transit times include Montreal to Milwaukee, Rockford, Ill., and St. Louis. From Toronto, the company now provides two-day service to Atlanta, Augusta, Charlotte, Charleston and Savannah.

UPS Freight’s Canadian service includes a pre-arrival customs system that speeds clearance at border crossings, minimizes delays and accelerates transit times.

The technology enables the electronic transmission of customs documentation; complete online tracking from origin to destination, with instant access to all customs documents; notifying customers of any customs delays with alerts, and 24-hour access to all shipping information.
