UPS today officially opened a new high-speed package sortation center in New Castle, Delaware.
The new facility adds approximately 70 percent more package processing power to support the growing demand of businesses and residential customers in New Castle County and across the state.
“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. 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.”
Trayce Parker, president of UPS’s Chesapeake District
Featuring highly-automated technology that rapidly moves packages through the scanning and sorting process while capturing data to increase delivery accuracy, the new UPS package center is part of a multi-year strategic investment plan to grow the company’s global smart logistics network.
The New Castle building construction incorporates LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) practices and has applied for LEED Certification, a further demonstration of UPS’s commitment to sustainability and the environment.
More than 1,100 employees in Delaware provide package delivery, ground freight, healthcare, and contract logistics services.
