Express carrier UPS plans to open a new distribution center at Calgary International Airport in October, 2009. The company’s Canada subsidiary will construct a C$26-million, 150,000-square-foot distribution facility to handle import, export and Canadian domestic shipments. The center will allow UPS to double its package processing capability for growing volume moving through Alberta province. Since 2003, UPS has seen a 60-per cent increase in the volume of orders from the greater Calgary area, particularly from the retail, technology and financial sectors which have benefitted from the province’s oil and gass boom.
