UPS expands Tennessee hub to more than 41,500 sq m


UPS announced completion of the multi-phased expansion of its Whitescreek, Tennessee, ground package sortation and distribution facility. According to UPS, the sortation and distribution facility has grown to more than 41,500 sq m, nearly doubling package sortation capacity. The project has also brought more than 300 new full- and part-time jobs to the area.

The expanded UPS package operations hub is part of a multi-year strategic investment plan to grow UPS’s global smart logistics network. The site features highly automated equipment that moves packages through the scanning and sorting process while capturing data to increase delivery accuracy. The facility is also a transfer point for tractor trailers moving packages to destinations beyond Tennessee, and provides pickup and delivery service for customers in Nashville and the surrounding counties.  

Cher Porties, president of UPS’s Mid-South District said, “UPS is transforming our operations to provide innovative solutions that serve the changing needs of small, medium and large businesses. Doubling our Whitescreek hub’s size and capacity, and powering it with UPS’s advanced technology help enable our customers to grow their business.”
