UPS celebrates opening of new high-speed sortation facility in Delaware


UPS has officially opened a new high-speed package sortation facility in New Castle, Delaware, US, adding approximately 70% 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 pick-up 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.

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 centre is part of a multi-year strategic investment plan to grow UPS’s global smart logistics network.

The facility will compliment the company’s new offerings such as UPS My Choice® for Business, extended pickup hours for Next Day Ground Delivery and expanded UPS Access Point™ locations.

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 will provide package delivery, ground freight, healthcare and contract logistics services.
