ATLANTA, GA– United Parcel Service (UPS) today announced plans to invest in excess of $400 million to build a new regional package sorting hub on the west side of Atlanta. Located on a 340 Acre Industrial site adjacent to Fulton County “Charlie Brown” Airport, the new hub will be the third largest and most technically advanced processing facility in the company’s network.
Atlanta companies with a global reach will see direct benefits when the new hub comes online in 2018. Rotorcorp LLC, the world’s largest distributor of parts for Robinson R22, R44 and R66 Helicopters is based at neighboring Fulton County Airport.
“Rotorcorp currently serves over one-thousand customers in forty-five different countries around the world.” says Rotorcorp Vice President Sean Casey.
“We expect this facility will directly benefit to our after-sales support and logistics, ultimately making Rotorcorp more competitive and cost effective. It is the next best thing to being able to personally put customer orders on the cargo plane ourselves”.
Approximately sixty-percent of Rotorcorp sales are exported outside of the U.S. and Casey expects that the proximity and scale of hub to provide expanded flexibility and allow Rotorcorp to accelerate growth objectives through increased export sales.
Atlanta is an obvious choice for a major logistics hub because of its rail and road infrastructure and proximity to a major seaport. A UPS mega-hub would boost cargo volumes at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, already the world’s busiest passenger airport.
