UPS opens UK mega-hub

[ September 6, 2021   //   ]

UPS has officially opened its expanded air hub at East Midlands Airport.  The36,000sq m operation can now sort up to 22,500 packages per hour – more than twice the capacity of the previous facility and scale up more easily during peak periods. There are six daily flights to key markets, including Germany and the US.

The facility features automated scanning and sortation systems  and it is served in part by liquefied natural gas UPS vehicles that refuel at the nearby ground hub in Tamworth.
