UPS breaks ground on Salt Lake City hub

UPS announced that it has broken ground on a new $275m regional operations hub in Salt Lake City that will be among the largest processing facilities in its global network. When completed in late 2018, the new 840,000 square foot facility will process 69,000 packages per hour as a complement to the existing 200,000 square foot operations in town.

In a statement posted yesterday (23 February), Mark Wallace, UPS senior vice president of global engineering and sustainability, said: “This new regional hub is one of our strategic initiatives to continue to build the long-term future of UPS.

“Utah is the crossroads to serving the Western U.S., and the state-of-the-art automation technology being deployed will improve performance, increase capacity and create additional flexibility to handle the non-stop growth of e-commerce business in the region.”
