Logistics firm United Parcel Service (UPS) has unveiled plans to construct a new $200M package-handling centre in Arlington, Texas.
Equipped with the latest operational technology and equipment, the new 102,190 sq m UPS hub will create network efficiency and flexibility to manage business and consumer-directed package growth for the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex.
UPS Red River District president, Craig Wiltz, said: “The new Arlington building is part of the strategic investments UPS is making to dramatically improve the efficiency and connectedness of our hubs, package centres and transportation network.
“This project is part of our ongoing efforts to keep pace with rapidly evolving demands of e-commerce customers in Texas, across the US and around the globe. UPS is taking its efficient global operation to the next level.”
Construction on the facility is scheduled to be complete in late 2018. The project will meet the LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) specifications.
