UPS has completed a major expansion of its package sorting hub at Clark Airport. The move, which sees the facility nearly double in size, will allow UPS to process up to 30% more packages per hour and means customers in more postal codes in Metro Manila will be able to receive deliveries via UPS's Worldwide Express service several hours earlier than before. Meanwhile pickup times for some local export businesses will also be extended to give them more time to process orders every day.
The expansion of the Clark hub is part of an ongoing commitment by UPS to provide better express delivery experiences for customers across Asia Pacific. It follows the relocation earlier this year of the company's Cebu Center nearer to the Mactan-Cebu International Airport and numerous other regional network and facility enhancements including in Singapore, Japan, China, Vietnam and South Korea. Results from UPS's intra-Asia study show that the Philippines' trade with 11 other leading Asia Pacific economies could more than triple by 2030, with digitalization, e-commerce and inclusive policies for SMBs all providing growth opportunities.
