UPS opening new package facility

UPS is to set up a new package processing facility in Plainfield, Indiana.

The $260 million, 893,000 square foot hub site is located west of Indianapolis. It is to open this autumn for trailer processing with a view to be operating in time for the 2017 peak season. Build out will be completed in late 2019 ahead of that peak season.

According to UPS, the new facility is to feature ‘advanced’ package scanning and sorting equipment.

According to UPS, it is “evaluating infrastructure availability for alternative fuels at the new building”.

“Central Indiana is a logistics gateway for efficient transportation networks that enhance UPS reliability and service,” said Kevin Church, president of UPS’s Ohio Valley District that includes Indiana, Kentucky and Southern Ohio.
