UPS announced today that it will begin rolling UPS Express delivery service to Massachusetts and Vermont beginning next week, with Rhode Island and Massachusetts expected to follow in a few weeks.
The announcement came after Massachusetts Gov.
Charlie Baker (D) announced that his state would start offering UPS Express service by the end of the year.
The new service will be available to customers in the Boston metro area, with an additional delivery service being added to Vermont, New Hampshire, and Connecticut.
The service will operate in Boston, Boston-Cambridge, Cambridge, Cambridge-Newton, Boston, Cambridge (MA), Brookline, Cambridge-, Worcester, Medford-Newark, Worcester-Somerville, Somerville-Plymouth, and Cambridge-Manchester markets.
Baker also announced that Massachusetts will be adding an additional service to the state, with a launch date yet to be announced.
The additional service will start in Massachusetts in late July.
“With Massachusetts being one of the fastest-growing states in the country, we believe that bringing UPS Express to these states is an excellent way to accelerate our delivery network and help businesses with increased productivity,” said UPS President and Chief Executive Officer Tom Anderson.
“We’re excited to be expanding our delivery footprint to these markets and we’re committed to working with our customers to help make this service available.”
In addition to Massachusetts offering UPS delivery service, Massachusetts is expected to offer UPS Express in other states as well.
UPS is also offering service in Connecticut, Maine, and Pennsylvania.
