As e-commerce continues to grow, UPS continues to keep up by adapting and adjusting its network to the changes. Plans were announced this month for a new package processing hub in Goodyear, Arizona, to be completed in late 2019. This plan comes to light just as UPS’ Saturday ground delivery and pickup service starts in Phoenix on June 3, 2017.
The new, $180 million facility is expected to bring more than 1,500 jobs to the Goodyear area to operate the 970,000+ square feet of sorting equipment and other operational technologies. Portions of the facility are expected to become operational later this year, in time for the busy holiday season. It’ll provide additional processing and automated sorting for lightweight small packages typical of e-commerce.
The new hub in Goodyear brings UPS the potential to reach nearly 80,000 customers faster and at lower costs. Coupled with the Saturday ground delivery and pickup service, they appear to be moving in the right direction to keep up with the ever growing and expanding e-commerce industry.
