UPS  has opened a new international hub in Shanghai, improving access to China and speeding the movement of express packages and heavy freight. The facility, located at the Pudong International Airport, becomes the key gateway linking China to UPS's global network, according to the company.

UPS said the hub features the largest on-site 24/7 customs inspection area in Shanghai and was built to facilitate rapid handling of express packages, as well as heavy freight.

“Everything about this facility was built for speed and reliability,” said Dan Brutto, president of UPS International in a statement. “Linked now to our vast integrated transportation network, it opens wider the doors of commerce with China.”

The hub, with 117 conveyor belts and 47 docking bays, has a package sorting capacity of 17,000 pieces per hour. With its high sorting capacity, the hub improves delivery times for customers in eastern China by a full day.

To speed processing, UPS, working with Shanghai Customs, has deployed an industry-first customs risk management system, which merges UPS information with customs to identify high-risk items for inspection.
