UPS has unveiled its plans to construct a new 225,000ft² state-of-the-art sorting facility in Austin, Texas, in the USA.
The new building will cost approximately US$70m to build and will be capable of housing approximately 300 UPS delivery vehicles. It will also contain the latest automated sorting technologies including six-sided decode tunnels and ‘smart label’ applicators, providing UPS loaders with faster instructions versus conventional systems. It scheduled to open at the end of 2018.
Craig Wiltz, president of UPS’s Red River District, said, “UPS is focused on helping our customers in Texas and around the world solve their logistics problems. This new facility in Round Rock will provide additional pickup and delivery service to UPS customers throughout the area so they can focus on growing their business.”
