A spokeswoman for UPS was unable to provide more details about the site, or when the company is due to move in.

The express parcel carrier also has a  312,000ft² hub in nearby Tamworth, which it is authorised to operate 200 vehicles and 150 trailers from. It recently opened a biomethane refuelling station at the hub, which will be used to fuel its 20 dual-fuel trucks.
