The Shanghai Airport Authority and UPS last month conducted a formal groundbreaking ceremony for the UPS International Air Hub at Pudong International Airport. Located at the southern end of the West Cargo Terminal Area, the new hub will be built on a parcel totaling one million square feet and will open next year.

Rapid expansion is planned to a sorting capacity of 17,000 pieces per hour. The new hub will link all of China via Shanghai to UPS’ international network with direct service to the Americas, Europe and Asia. It also will connect points served in China by UPS through a dedicated service provided by Yangtze River Express.
