UPS UK has confirmed it has started construction on its new integrated hub in Tamworth.
The new facility, which is expected to open October 2007, will be the largest UPS building in the UK and the second largest one in Europe, behind the UPS hub at Cologne airport.
The hub will have a planned capacity of 42,000 packages per hour. The building is part of a series of major investments that UPS has made in Europe in recent years.
UPS said that it has not yet decided what will happen to the existing UPS and Lynx sites in the area.
