UPS breaks ground on new German package sorting and delivery centre

UPS officially broke ground this week on a new package sorting and delivery centre in Bielefeld, Eastern North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany. The $80 million facility, which is scheduled to be operational by the end of October 2017, will replace the existing UPS package centre in Herford, Germany. UPS said that all 330 Herford employees will have the opportunity to transfer to the new facility when it opens.

The new centre is part of UPS’s commitment to invest $2bn in the company’s European infrastructure through 2019.

The Bielefeld facility will have an operating area of approximately 15,000 square metres and will be equipped with automated sorting systems capable of processing more than 22,500 packages per hour. The facility will have 65 loading and unloading bays for containers and 115 parking positions for UPS delivery trucks.

UPS currently employs more than 18,000 people at 83 facilities across Germany.
