Express carrier UPS will now allow shippers to schedule Saturday pickups of export shipments for delivery to 57 overseas markets, with some deliveries made as soon as Monday.
    UPS said the new export service builds on its existing Saturday ground delivery and pickup services for its U.S. customers, which were started in 2017. The company expects small and midsize e-commerce firms, in particular, to take advantage of the service.
    The destination countries related to the Saturday export pickup service are located in the Americas, Europe and Asia Pacific. UPS plans to expand the global coverage for this service later this year.
I recall that when I started at the port in 2003, all the excitement was around the biggest ship to ever call at the port and it was 8,000 TEUs. Just 15 years ago, that was a big ship, Now they’re talking ships that are 20,000--22,000 TEU.

Spot container rates from Shanghai to the U.S. West Coast totaled $1,345 per FEU as of March 15, while rates from Shanghai to the U.S. East Coast stood at $2,357 per FEU, with rates on both trades falling each week since the Jan. 18 reading, according to data from the Shanghai Containerized Freight Index.
