UPS’ expanded Tennessee hub ready to handle packages
Sep 27, 2019: UPS yesterday announced the completion of the multi-phased expansion of its Whitescreek, Tennessee ground package sortation and distribution facility.
The expansion includes doubling its Whitescreek hub’s size and capacity, as well as deployment of UPS’s advanced technology.
In addition to this, the hub now features high-automation equipment. The equipment allows rapid movement of packages through the scanning and sorting process while capturing data to increase delivery accuracy.
As companies now demand innovative logistics solutions, the high-speed hub will allow the Atlanta-based logistics giant to serve the changing needs of small, medium and large businesses.
A transfer point for tractor trailers moving packages to destinations beyond Tennessee, the facility also provides pickup and delivery service for customers in Nashville and the surrounding counties.
Combined with new services and solutions like UPS My Choice for Business, extended pickup hours for Next Day Ground Delivery and expanded UPS Access Point locations, UPS is enabling companies of all sizes in Tennessee, across the United States and around the world to deliver products when, where and how their customers want.
According to UPS, the project has brought more than 300 new full- and part-time jobs to the area.
Businesses and consumers throughout the state will benefit from the expanded sortation and distribution facility’s increased speed, efficiency and reliability.
The expanded UPS package operations hub is part of a multi-year strategic investment plan to grow UPS’s global smart logistics network.
