To keep up with FedEx who announced 7-day a week delivery in May, UPS has announced new 7-day delivery, added locations and drone delivery. UPS will now expand its “Access Point” service which allows customers to pick up or drop off pre-labeled packages, to more than 40,000 brick and mortar locations, including Michael’s Craft stores, CVS and Advance Auto Parts stores. UPS has also extended the hours for next-day delivery and expanded the capacity for overnight deliveries with more next-day air capacity. UPS also said it applied for FAA approval to use drones for delivery. UPS is currently testing medical deliveries on the campus of a hospital system in Raleigh, NC, a business which they estimate to be a $3 billion to $4 billion dollar market in the U.S by 2020.
