UPS has expanded its presence Milan Bergamo Airport with the addition of a new facility that will expand capacity.
The new facility measures 5,000 sq m and is equipped with sorting facilities enabling it to process 3,800 packages per hour – twice as many as the previous building.
UPS operates three daily flights (Monday to Friday) to Milan Bergamo from its European hub in Cologne and/or onwards to further UPS stations, utilising the carrier’s widebody B767s.
“The strategic choice made by UPS at Milan Bergamo Airport is particularly significant as it supports the process of infrastructural development and growth undertaken by SACBO. UPS’ investment and commitment to our airport demonstrates its belief in the indispensability of the logistics function to support the local economy,” said Giovanni Sanga, president of airport operator SACBO.
The facility will be powered by renewable energy and has achieved a Class A1 Energy Performance Certificate.
“This new facility will play a fundamental role in the growth of imports and exports of the company. The Lombardy Region and all of Italy will be bringing the best of ‘Made in Italy’ to the world for years to come,” said Britta Weber, chief executive of UPS Italia.
