UPS (NYSE:UPS) has officially opened its new 893,000-square-foot package sortation and distribution center in Plainfield. The company says the facility will create nearly 580 new jobs by 2023.
The center began processing packages in 2017 during the winter while construction of the new “super hub” was still underway.
Now operating at full capacity UPS says the facility provides increased speed, efficiency and dynamic routing technology.
“Our business is growing in Indiana and the surrounding states. The new regional super hub in Plainfield sorts packages faster and more accurately by bringing together highly-automated operations, advanced technology, and dedicated employees. Our customers can have confidence that they will continue to receive the reliability and performance that they have come to expect from UPS,” said Joe Boyle, president of UPS’s Ohio Valley District which includes Indiana, Kentucky and southern Ohio, in a news released. “We appreciate the state and local community support that enables us to offer good-paying jobs that serve Indiana businesses and consumers.”
