UPS expands four North American facilities
ATLANTA, GA- Trucking, parcel and logistics service provider UPS announced it has built three new buildings and expanded another in four North American locations.
Rapid customer growth in Mira Loma, California, Hebron, Kentucky, Louisville, Kentucky and Toronto, Ontario, fuelled the demand for new or larger facilities.
“These investments are needed to not only support our existing customers and their growth but to also create capacity to support our new business expansion,” said Stephen Hydrick, UPS vice president of North American distribution. “As our customers grow, we will continue to find and invest in solutions.”
With the announced expansion at the four locations, UPS has boosted its network size by about 1.2-million sq. ft.
Toronto: UPS has added 62,000 sq. ft. to the Mississauga-based facility, which is located less than 10 minutes from Toronto’s Pearson International Airport.
Mira Loma, California: The expansion is the second time the facility has grown in 2014. UPS increased the southern California campus by 309,000 sq. ft. in April, and has now added another 228,000 sq. ft.
Hebron, Kentucky: In April, UPS added 151,000 sq. ft. to the Hebron facility. With the new investment, UPS has added another 274,000 sq. ft.
Louisville, Kentucky: This Shepherdsville, Kentucky location increased by 606,000 sq. ft.
