20,000 m², direct access to aircraft, capable of handling 1 million tons of cargo per year, and ready to go into operation in 2028: Those are the key points around a brand-new hub that UPS announced it will be creating over at Hong Kong International Airport. It signed an agreement with Hong Kong Airport Authority last week, designed to “to boost global trade with enhanced operations” at this new hub. Located at the airport and also close to the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge, for improved and more reliable connectivity to Hong Kong, the Greater Bay Area1, the new hub facility is planned to become UPS Hong Kong’s main processing location for the growing Asia Pacific consumer market, handling all imports, exports, and transshipments to and from Europe, the U.S., as well as other parts of Asia. It will enable UPS to optimize its existing operations in Hong Kong (founded some 35 years ago) by streamlining some smaller and separately located facilities. Naturally, as is the case with most new-builds these days, the hub will be fully automated and include state-of-the-art sorting and scanning technology, alongside sustainable, environment-friendly features.

The release promises further growth and investment: “UPS will continue to invest in Asia Pacific to serve its customers with stronger cross-border connectivity, greater capacity, and an industry-leading customer experience. In recent years, UPS has made numerous network and facility enhancements across Asia, including Singapore, Japan, China, Vietnam, South Korea, and the Philippines. UPS also launched UPS Premier, a ‘white glove’ shipping service targeted at healthcare customers who require precision logistics for patient-critical, time- and temperature-sensitive products. UPS Premier is now available in seven countries in Asia, including Hong Kong, with more locations planned for launch next year.”

Daryl Tay, President of UPS North Asia District, stated: “Hong Kong continues to be an engine of growth and a critical part of UPS’s global smart logistics network. This new hub, along with our existing operations at Shenzhen Bao An Airport, demonstrate our continued commitment to Asia. We will continue to invest in areas of our network that bring unique value to our customers and create additional growth opportunities for UPS.”
