UPS officially opens Delaware package sortation facility
Aug 16, 2019: UPS has officially opened a new high-speed package sortation center in New Castle, Delaware, to support the growing demand of businesses and residential customers in New Castle County and across the state.
This new UPS package center features highly-automated technology that rapidly moves packages through the scanning and sorting process while capturing data to increase delivery accuracy.
This facility that adds approximately 70 percent more package processing power, is part of a multi-year strategic investment plan to grow UPS’s global smart logistics network.
“This new UPS facility will provide additional pickup and delivery services to our customers in Delaware so they can focus on growing their business, while meeting their customers’ demands for speed and reliability,” said Trayce Parker, president of UPS’s Chesapeake District.
“We are excited to bring more good paying full- and part-time jobs to the New Castle area, as UPS expands our presence as a partner in the community.”
The Atlanta-based logistics giant will offer new solutions and services like UPS My Choice for Business, extended pickup hours for Next Day Ground Delivery and expanded UPS Access Point locations, to enhance the delivery process for companies of all sizes in Delaware.
The New Castle building construction incorporates LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) practices and has applied for LEED Certification.
More than 1,100 employees in Delaware provide package delivery, ground freight, healthcare and contract logistics services.
