Universal Express Profiled in U.S. Industry Today

NEW YORK, NY -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 7, 2007 -- Universal Express Inc. (OTCBB: USXP) today announced its presence in this month's issue of US Industry Review. The article titled "Protecting Baggage" by David Soyka profiles Universal Express and its visionary, CEO and Chairman Richard A. Altomare and his mission to keep baggage and air travelers safe. The article also profiles all the Universal Express subsidiaries: Luggage Express, Luggage Express Found, MadPackers and Universal Jet.

"Protecting Baggage" examines the security aspect of the private shipping industry and discusses how it may be the answer to airline terrorism. "The government and airlines industry are spending on increased security since September 11, 2001. It has not made our airlines and terminals safer from a terrorist attack. Over 92 percent of luggage loaded on passenger planes, is never opened and its contents never checked," said Richard A. Altomare. He goes on to explain that the "Airlines are in the people transporting business not the luggage business therefore they should do what they do best and leave transporting baggage to the experts who can do it more effectively and efficiently."

The article also profiles all the Universal Express subsidiaries. It talks about Luggage Express, a service that picks up passengers luggage and delivers it to their end destination; MadPackers a door to dorm service where student's belongings are packed and safely taken to their dorm room; Luggage Express Found, which delivers lost or misplaced baggage and finally Universal Jet, its private charter Airline.

The article ends by describing how Universal Express's luggage business is about protecting the safety of all travelers. "It is my sincere hope that we get a lot smarter and faster about how luggage moves to and from airports," stated Mr. Altomare. "Let's not have a suicide luggage terrorist force us to change our cosmetic airport security system to separate passengers and airports from their luggage. We are only one suitcase bomb away from an event that will dwarf September 11 and damage the American airline industry," concluded Mr. Altomare.
