UPS plans to set up a new $260m package processing facility in Plainfield, Indiana.

Located west of Indianapolis, the 893,000 square foot hub will open this fall for trailer processing with a view to be operating in time for the busy holiday season and build-out will be completed in late 2019.

The facility will feature “advanced” package scanning and sortation equipment.

UPS said that it is “evaluating infrastructure availability for alternative fuels at the new building”.

“Central Indiana is a logistics gateway for efficient transportation networks that enhance UPS reliability and service,” said Kevin Church, president of UPS’s Ohio Valley District that includes Indiana, Kentucky and Southern Ohio.
