The FINANCIAL -- UPS Freight announced
an addition to its guaranteed service portfolio that will help
less-than-truckload (LTL) shippers meet the growing demands of their
businesses while helping their customers to better plan their workdays.
As United Parcel Service of America, Inc. announced, UPS Freight LTL Guaranteed A.M., which the company will begin offering on Jan. 2, 2013, offers delivery by noon to select ZIP codes in the contiguous United States and Washington, D.C.

"UPS Freight strives to ensure that goods are delivered door-to-door in the most efficient and cost-effective way possible."
