UPS, one of the world's largest global logistics and parcel service providers, has announced to add six further locations to its Atlantic Canada expansion.
The network expansion is going to create 250 new jobs with the logistics company in Atlantic Canada. All in all, UPS' investment is going to exceed its initial figure of $215 million (2005). The parcel service provider has been working on its broad network expansion throughout the Canadian territories.
UPS Canada President, Mike Tierney, expressed his excitement about the new locations:
"This is a very exciting year for us. Adding six more cities to our expansion signifies the potential for growth we see in the Atlantic provinces."
The Atlantic Canada expansion is going to be continued in April 2012 when Monocton and Halifax will be added to the UPS network. In the second half 2012, UPS is then going to take the following cities onboard:
- Saint John and Fredericton, New Brunswick; Sydney and New Glasgow, Nova Scotia; Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island; and St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador.
By expanding its network, UPS Canada also hopes to improve its general parcel delivery across Canada.
Halifax-born Shelley Gares, who will be responsible of Atlantic Canada operations, said that she appreciated the job opportunity given to her and could not "wait to see Brown package cars driving in each of the Atlantic provinces!"
