PMTA board member opens UPS "Super Hub" and PA Road Team member awarded

PMTA member company UPS opened a new "super hub" in Middletown, Pennsylvania Wednesday. 

The East Zone Regional Hub, located at 2110 North Union Street in Middletown, is the company's fourth largest domestic hub. The 775,000-square-foot distribution facility features the latest sorting, processing, and data capture technology. More than 2,500 people will be employed at the 192-acre site. 

In 2020, UPS committed to invest $1.4 billion to expand operations and create 1,700 new jobs at four locations in Pennsylvania. The Commonwealth offered UPS more than $9 million in incentives to win this major expansion project. 

In an interview with ABC 27 News, PMTA Board Member Ray Barczak said, “It’s the gateway to the northeastern part of the United States."

The advanced automation of the United Parcel Service (UPS) hub is expected to ship packages quicker to customers in the region and help Central Pennsylvania reach other East Coast cities quicker like Baltimore, Philadelphia and Washington D.C.

The hub will also house the largest renewable natural gas fueling station in the UPS network. There will be a dedicated Employment Center and Automotive Service Center on property. 

The facility will have 87 primary unload doors, 320 outbound doors, 144 package car bays, the most CNG time-fill stations in the UPS network, a first- of-it's-kind-in-the-UPS-network geni-flex automated irreg system, and a 5x5 matrix with ACB small sort. 

Pennsylvania Road Team Bernie Wanyo was recognized at the ceremony for his commitment to the company. He's driven 18 accident-free years with UPS, and says he plans to stay with the company until he retires. 

Congratulations UPS and Bernie from PMTA members and staff!
