A NEW LOGISTIC INFRASTRUCTURE IN FRANCE

The expansion of the UPS facility in Corbeil-Essonnes/Evry cost US$100 m, making it the American firm's largest ever investment in France. The new center employs close to 1,000 people.

Nando Cesarone, CEO of UPS International, Elisabeth Borne, French Minister of Transport attached to the Ministry of Ecological Transition and Solidarity, and Pascal Cagni, ambassador for international investment, inaugurated the new logistics hub on June 26, 2018.

FRANCE AT THE HEART OF UPS'S EUROPEAN STRATEGY

Over the past few years, a significant share of UPS’s investments in Europe has gone into developing its business in France.

The new center results from the relocation of the former Chilly-Mazarin hub and the Savigny-le-Temple facility.

UPS also has hubs in Lyon, Montpellier and Dijon, which have been up and running since 2016 and 2017 respectively. The new facility will increase the company's footprint in France, where it already has 56 centers specialized in small parcel delivery and a fleet of over 800 delivery vehicles.

Business France has actively supported the UPS expansion project.

FRANCE STRENGTHENS ATTRACTION FOR LOGISTICS ACTIVITIES

This substantial investment confirms that France is an attractive location for high-tech logistics operations. The hub will be a showcase of automated sorting technology, which allows 37,000 parcels to be processed per hour.

UPS expects transit times to improve considerably, resulting in faster customer delivery. Thus, France and the advantages its offers will make UPS more competitive with its customers and enable it to profit from the dramatic growth in e-commerce in Europe.
