UPS announced that it is investing in a new package sorting and delivery center in Bülach near Zürich.
The facility will be located in a key economic region of Switzerland and will offer businesses in the country’s largest metropolitan area efficient access to UPS’s global network.
“Kanton Zürich is one of Switzerland’s leading economic regions, with companies active in the financial, insurance and retail sectors. Due to growing demand, there was a clear need to enhance our processing capability in order to continue connecting our customers to UPS’s smart global logistics network. This new facility, which is part of UPS’s wider investment in enhancing its network and services across Europe, will allow us to continue providing Swiss businesses with the efficient and reliable connections they need to reach their customers no matter where they are in the world.”
Michiel van Veen, country manager, UPS Switzerland
UPS Center to open by the end of 2020
The Zürich center, scheduled to open by the end of 2020, will have an operating area of approximately 6,300 square meters and a sorting capacity of 5,500 packages per hour, which is approximately 50% more than the building it will replace in Rümlang.
The new facility will also bring package, freight and supply chain services under one roof, offering increased efficiency for customers, and approximately 200 employees will be based in the building.
The new facility is part of the company’s multi-year, $2 billion European investment plan, which aims to modernize and expand the UPS network across the continent.
The company previously announced a new facility in Eindhoven, the Netherlands, and new hubs in London and Paris.
