NYSE-listed UPS and the Hong Kong Airport Authority have entered into an agreement that improves service to UPS customers, and enhances the company’s operations in Asia with a new hub at the Hong Kong International Airport and near the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau bridge.

"The new hub will serve as UPS Hong Kong’s main facility for processing and sorting imports, exports and transshipments to and from Europe, the U.S., and other parts of Asia," says a release from UPS.

The hub is expected to be completed by 2028 and will be built on a land parcel of 20,000 square metres with direct access to aircraft, the release added. "The facility is being designed to handle close to one million tonnes of annual capacity, giving UPS and its customers around the world better and more reliable connectivity to Hong Kong, the Greater Bay Area, and the growing Asia Pacific consumer market."

Daryl Tay, President, North Asia District, UPS says: “Hong Kong continues to be an engine of growth and a critical part of UPS’s global smart logistics network. This new hub, along with our existing operations at Shenzhen Bao An Airport, demonstrate our continued commitment to Asia. We will continue to invest in areas of our network that bring unique value to our customers and create additional growth opportunities for UPS.”

A fully automated facility, the hub will be powered by state-of-the-art sorting and scanning technology and boasts environment-friendly features, the release added.

UPS also launched UPS Premier, a white glove shipping service targeted at healthcare customers who require precision logistics for patient-critical, time- and temperature-sensitive products. UPS Premier is now available in seven countries in Asia, including Hong Kong, with more locations planned for launch next year.
