United Parcel Service is greeting customers this new year with new enhancements to services...and a rate hike. UPS will introduce a guaranteed noon delivery on 2nd Day Air A.M. Service; an enhanced next-day service called Next Day Air Saver, which guarantees delivery by 3 p.m.; full tracking of shipments; and a rate hike for Next Day Air, 2nd Day Air and 3-Day Select of approximately 3.9%. International rates are up 2.6%. The enhancements and rate hikes are effective Feb. 1. A UPS spokesperson said a marketing campaign addressing express choices will begin after that date.
