Moves cater to high-tech, industrial manufacturing and retail customers
UPS® (NYSE:UPS) today announced the addition of three buildings and the expansion of another in four North American locations, boosting its supply chain solutions network size by nearly 1.2 million sq. ft. Rapid growth of customers in the high-tech, industrial manufacturing and retail industries fueled the demand for new or expanded facilities in Mira Loma, California; Hebron, Kentucky; Louisville, Kentucky; and Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
This marks the second time in 2014 that both the Mira Loma and Hebron campuses increased in size.
“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.”
UPS’s global supply chain solutions network includes 596 facilities and nearly 32.8 million sq. ft. Services and capabilities offered at UPS supply chain facilities include: warehousing and fulfillment; inventory, transportation and returns management; custom kitting and packaging; and store-ready displays. These modern facilities are critical for customers as 99 percent of the U.S. population is within a two-day time-in-transit of inventory.
