UPS has officially opened its new 893,000ft2 (83,000m2) package sortation and distribution center in Plainfield, Indiana. The facility initially started processing packages in 2017 during the busy holiday season while construction of the new ‘super hub’ was still underway. Now operating at full capacity, customers are receiving all the benefits from the facility’s increased speed, efficiency and dynamic routing technology.
“Our business is growing in Indiana and the surrounding states. The new regional super hub in Plainfield sorts packages faster and more accurately by bringing together highly automated operations, advanced technology and dedicated employees. Our customers can have the confidence that they will continue to receive the reliability and performance that they have come to expect from UPS,” said Joe Boyle, president of UPS’s Ohio Valley District, which includes Indiana, Kentucky and southern Ohio. “We appreciate the state and local community support that enables us to offer well paying jobs that serve Indiana businesses and consumers.”
Home to growing biotechnology, life sciences and health care sectors, Indianapolis area businesses benefit from enhanced delivery speed, accuracy and service reliability from the new regional super hub’s data-driven package scanning and sortation equipment. The new sorting center will create more than 575 full- and part-time jobs by 2023.
