UPS plans to build a new $200 million package operations facility in Arlington,Texas – which will span more than 1.1 million square feet on more than 110 acres.
The Arlington facility is scheduled for completion late 2018. The construction will incorporate LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) practices.
The freight integrator says it will be powered by industry leading operational technology and equipment, and the hub will create even greater network efficiency and flexibility to manage business and consumer-directed package growth for the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex.
UPS’ president of the Red River District, Craig Wiltz says: “The new Arlington building is part of the strategic investments UPS is making to dramatically improve the efficiency and connectedness of our hubs, package centers and transportation network.
“This project is part of our ongoing efforts to keep pace with rapidly evolving demands of e-commerce customers in Texas, across the U. and around the globe. UPS is taking its efficient global operation to the next level.”
He adds: “Combined with the other UPS facility projects in the Austin, Dallas-Fort Worth, Houston and San Antonio areas, the additional capacity addresses the rapid expansion of both residential and commercial demand, as well as sustains a strong employee base in the area.”
The UPS network reach in the Dallas-Fort Worth area includes eight package delivery facilities, an air gateway, ground freight, and supply chain logistics centers including healthcare logistics. Applicants can learn more about UPS jobs at upsjobs.com.
