In the face of growing demand in the state, UPS has opened a new high-speed sorting centre in New Castle, Delaware. This will add around 70% capacity to its operations in the small tax-efficient US 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,” said Trayce Parker, president of UPS’s Chesapeake District. “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.”
The sorting centre sends packages through the scanning and sorting process automatically, collecting data as it does so to improve delivery accuracy. This is part of a multi-year investment strategy in improving capacity, speed, efficiency and customer experience on the part of UPS.
