UPS to double sorting capacity at Ontario International

Parcel delivery and logistics provider UPS has unveiled its plans to expand operations at Ontario International Airport in California, USA, with the addition of a new airfreight sorting facility and expansion of its existing ground sorting depot.

The new 416,000ft² airfreight facility will be fitted with state-of-the-art automated sorting technology and will process urgent UPS Next Day Air packages from up to 38 daily flights.

The existing ground sorting facility will be expanded by approximately 15% to 900,000ft², and will be retrofitted with automated sorting systems that will double the parcel sorting capacity. UPS plans to create more than 500 jobs at the depot over the next five years and will start hiring in 2018.

George Willis, west region president, UPS, said, “These investments in UPS’s air and ground network illustrate UPS’s commitment to customers in the inland empire and abroad, and are part of an ongoing, network-wide investment the company continues to make in hub expansion and automation. We are expanding UPS’s integrated network to meet the needs of customers as they grow their businesses in the USA and around the world.”
