The new distribution facilities are in addition to the UPS healthcare facilities that opened last year in Shanghai and Hangzhou.
The Chengdu and Shanghai non-bonded distribution facilities are located close to international airports and major road networks and are built with capabilities to support primarily the high-tech, industrial manufacturing, aerospace, and retail industries.
The Chengdu facility offers more than 47,000 square feet of warehousing and distribution space, providing access to central and western China and the growing cities of Chengdu and Chongqing. The facility is located 2.5 miles from the Chengdu Shuangliu International Airport.
The Shanghai facility consists of more than 70,000 square feet of distribution space and is less than two miles from the UPS international hub at Shanghai’s Pudong Airport, China’s largest airport by air cargo volume. The short distance to the hub enables later cutoff times for express and freight exports to key markets in North America, Europe, and within Asia.
