UPS has opened its expanded air hub at East Midlands Airport, positioning it as a vital connection to world markets.


According to the company, the £138 million investment strengthens the connection between the Midlands region and businesses throughout the country to UPS’s global smart logistics network. 


The hub is fitted with the latest package sorting technology that further increases efficiency, reliability and speed.


Jim O’Gara, President, UPS UK Ireland & Nordics, said: “Our investment at East Midlands Airport shows our confidence that UK businesses of all sizes are poised to make the most of export opportunities now and in the future.  


“Our message to companies large and small in the region is that the world is at their fingertips, and we’re here to make doing business internationally as easy as doing business at home.’’


UPS’s expanded air hub is 36,000m² and can now sort up to 22,500 packages per hour – more than twice the capacity of the previous facility.
