UPS has expanded its operations hub at Changi Airport in a move that will almost double the amount of packages the facility can process each day.
UPS said the expansion, which sees the overall size of its hub extended by 25 percent, will allow the company to process 40 percent more import packages, whilst speeding up delivery times to almost 5,000 additional postal codes across the country
Export processing capacity meanwhile is up 45 percent, with extended pick-up cut-off times for all export services. Chika Imakita, managing director at UPS Singapore, predicts the demand for e-commerce and complex healthcare shipments to continue for some time, and to support the sector, the company has installed cold storage solutions at the Changi airport hub, including refrigerators and freezers that can maintain critical temperatures to facilitate the temporary storage of shipments being transported via the cold chain
“Moving forward, Singapore will continue its role as a key part of our Asia Pacific operations. It connects our customers across Southeast Asia and Australasia with our global network, allowing for as soon as next-day delivery to destinations worldwide, including across Asia, Europe and the US,” Imakita noted.
