UPS is set to boost the processing capacity of its hub in Lenexa, Kansas hub by more than 40%.

Construction for the project is already underway and when completed in 2020 the facility will total about 430,000 square feet and be equipped with “the latest operational technology”.A second facility about 25 miles south in Edgerton will add another 197,000 square feet this fall in time for processing packages during the busy holiday season.

UPS said that advanced package scanning and sortation equipment in Lenexa will allow dynamic changes to route volume through the building and provide flexibility to adjust to different loading patterns prompted by weather conditions or volume surges.

Delivery centres will continue to operate from the Lenexa facility throughout the phased construction for local pickup and delivery.
