UPS offers worldwide express service to and from Israel to both residential and business addresses and a domestic
service within Israel through its authorized service contractor, O.P.S.I. International Handling Limited.
Regrettably, information provided recently by UPS customer service representatives regarding UPS's service territory in Israel was incorrect.
This is currently being resolved.
Through O.P.S.I., UPS covers 99% of the population in Israel outside the West Bank, except for a few remote areas in the Golan Heights and the Negev Desert, where it would be cost prohibitive to provide service. Only remote areas in the West Bank with very low population density are not covered - on both the Israeli and Palestinian sides. In the West Bank, UPS's service reaches over 80% of the population and covers approximately 60% of the territory, including the Gush EtZion area.
All packages coming from abroad are delivered into all areas of Yehuda and Shomron. This includes Gush EtZion. Customers residing in this area DO NOT have to go to Jerusalem to pickup their shipments.
UPS does not tolerate any type of discrimination and would not associate with any parties who did not embrace UPS's concern for fairness and equality.
