UPS Boosts Capacity In Three Key North American Markets

Atlanta, April 10, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- UPS (NYSE: UPS), driven by strong demand from customers in the retail, manufacturing and healthcare industries, today announced facility enhancements in three key North American markets. The expanded locations include Calgary, Alberta, Canada; Hebron, Ky.; and Mira Loma, Calif.

"These expansions are part of UPS's continued commitment to meet the needs of our customers," said Stephen Hydrick, UPS vice president of North American distribution. "As they launch new products and experience seasonal spikes in volume, they must have the flexibility to scale up and down. These investments give customers that flexibility, and it's vital to their success."

The investment adds nearly 478,000 sq. ft. to UPS's global supply chain solutions network, which now includes 528 facilities and nearly 31 million sq. ft. Services and capabilities offered at UPS supply chain facilities include: warehousing and fulfillment; inventory, transportation and returns management; custom kitting and packaging; and store-ready displays.

Facility details:

Hebron, Ky.

The Hebron campus - considered a key logistics operation serving the retail industry - has access to 62 percent of the U.S. population within two days via UPS Ground and 64 percent using UPS Freight. The campus, which added 151,000 sq. ft., is minutes from the Greater Cincinnati Airport and is within 600 miles of 30 major metropolitan markets.

Mira Loma, Calif.

The southern California location, which added 309,000 sq. ft., is one hour from the two largest seaports in the U.S. It is also just five minutes from LA/Ontario Airport, a UPS regional air hub, within eight miles of four major freeways, and just 15 minutes to transcontinental rail connections - all ideal for retail and manufacturing customers. UPS is able to move significant shipments originating from Asia Pacific to connections throughout the U.S.

Calgary, Alberta, Canada

Western Canada's UPS footprint was expanded with an additional 18,000 sq. ft. of cGMP-validated healthcare space. The new space allows for a one day time-in-transit to the majority of end-customers in the Saskatchewan-British Columbia corridor.
