UPS opens expanded Taipei air hub, new Beijing distribution facility
United Parcel Service (UPS) has opened a much larger processing facility at its Taipei air cargo hub located at Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport (TPE).
The new facility spans 82,000 sq. ft., 40% larger than UPS’s previous air cargo facility at TPE. “The new hub is expected to increase export processing capacity by more than 40%, while also doubling the processing capacity of import handling,” UPS Taiwan MD Anita Li said in a statement.
UPS operates 28 weekly freighter flights from Taiwan to markets in Asia, Europe and the US. The delivery giant said “customers can expect a one- to two-day delivery commitment to major cities in the US and Europe” from TPE. UPS noted the hub is particularly equipped to support Taiwan’s high-tech manufacturing sector.
Additionally, UPS this week opened a new contract logistics distribution facility in Beijing. “The 6,500 sq m of non-bonded warehouse space located 19 km from Beijing Capital International Airport serves growing demand in China and is capable of servicing contract logistics orders with four-hour delivery within the metropolitan Beijing area and next-business-day orders for major cities throughout China,” UPS said in a statement.
UPS opened similar distribution centers in Chengdu and Shanghai in 2013.
