UPS has opened a new contract logistics centre in North Warwickshire to meet growing demand from its retail and technology customers.

The new hub centre provides an extra 13,000m2 of warehousing space to UPS’s contract logistics operation.

With close proximity to the firm’s parcel sortation hub at Birch Coppice Business Park and East Midlands Airport hub, UPS said it is well connected to its global supply chain.

Derek Irving, director of UPS Contract Logistics UK, said: “We continue to expand our contract logistics reach and capabilities in the UK and Europe to serve the growing demands of our business-to-business and business-to-consumer customers.

“This facility investment demonstrates our continued commitment to supplying our customers in the UK with solutions that allow their businesses to be more competitive and reach global markets.”
