UPS officially opened its new 32,000 square metre package sorting and delivery facility in the south east of England. At $163 million, the new London Hub is one of UPS’s largest single infrastructure investments outside of the United States in the company’s history. “Every single day, we see evidence of a more inter-connected world of commerce. And we are delighted that UPS continues building upon its relationship with DP World to explore new international opportunities,” commented Rami Suleiman, newly appointed UPS President of Indian Subcontinent, Middle East and Africa region (ISMEA).
“We are leveraging our work with DP World, a global trade enabler, along with UPS’s smart global logistics network to improve trade flow processes that our customers rely upon to expand their businesses globally.”
UPS is also working with Expo 2020 Dubai as the official logistics partner to help connect Dubai to the world and the world to Dubai. The theme of the UK’s participation in Expo 2020 Dubai is “Global Britain – Innovating for a Shared Future.” The UK will build a pavilion and host a program of business and cultural events in Dubai.
“We congratulate UPS on this strategic development. By using DP World London Gateway Logistics Park and Port, UPS will have a fast ‘global conveyor-belt’ directly connected to their own worldwide network,” said Sultan Ahmed bin Sulayem, DP World’s Group Chairman and CEO.
