MISSISSAUGA, Ont. -- UPS has announced the significant expansion of its global healthcare distribution network, including the addition of more than 200,000 sq. ft. at its Burlington, Ont. facility. UPS has 11 dedicated healthcare facilities in Canada, including three on UPS’s Burlington logistics campus. UPS now has nearly 600,000 sq. ft. of healthcare distribution space at the campus.
Other expanding locations across UPS’s North American network include facilities in Louisville, Ky., Mira Loma, Calif., Atlanta, Ga., and Reno, Nev. Including the Burlington campus, the new expansions add nearly 800,000 sq. ft. to UPS’s global network of 37 dedicated healthcare facilities, which now total nearly six million sq. ft. of distribution space.
The announcement is just part of UPS’s recent investment in its global healthcare facilities. In October, UPS announced the expansion of its healthcare distribution network in the Asia-Pacific region, with the opening of three new facilities in Hangzhou, China, Shanghai, China and Sydney, Australia.
“UPS is committed to investing in our global network and supporting industry demand to meet customer needs for increased speed, flexibility and efficiency,” said Bill Hook, vice-president of global strategy at UPS Healthcare Logistics. “Our healthcare customers are creating value through our broad network and single global technology platform.”
