UPS to build new operations facility in Arlington, TX
Apr 07, 2017: UPS has announced it's plan to build a new $200 million package operations facility in Arlington, TX. The project will span more than 1,100,000 square feet on more than 110 acres. The new UPS hub will create even greater network efficiency and flexibility to manage the business and consumer-directed package growth for the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex.
Craig Wiltz, president, UPS, Red River District, said, “The new Arlington building is part of the strategic investments UPS is making to dramatically improve the efficiency and connectedness of our hubs, package centres and transportation network. This project is part of our ongoing efforts to keep pace with rapidly evolving demands of e-commerce customers in Texas, across the U.S. and around the globe. UPS is taking its efficient global operation to the next level.”
Approximately 1,400 full-time equivalent jobs will be aided by new technology that increases the accuracy of data collection for reliability and processing flexibility as packages route through the complex system of conveyors and advance across a maze of belts. Advanced package scanning and sortation equipment allows dynamic changes to route volume through the building or directed to other facilities. This minimises unexpected delays due to weather or volume surges and efficiently manages processing capacity in the region.
“Combined with the other UPS facility projects in the Austin, Dallas-Fort Worth, Houston and San Antonio areas, the additional capacity addresses the rapid expansion of both residential and commercial demand, as well as sustains a strong employee base in the area,” Wiltz added.
The Arlington facility is scheduled for completion late 2018. The construction will incorporate LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design.) practices, a further demonstration of UPS’s commitment to sustainability and the environment.
