LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - UPS says it has completed a $1 billion
expansion of its Worldport air hub that's credited with increasing
the Louisville facility's package sorting capacity by 37 percent.
The 1.2 million-square-foot expansion began in 2006 at the
sprawling air hub at Louisville International Airport.
UPS chief financial officer Kurt Kuehn The Courier-Journal of
Louisville on Tuesday that a larger Worldport has enabled the
company to cut costs and operate more efficiently. He said the
expansion allows UPS to use fewer but larger planes, save on fuel
and cut back operations at smaller hubs.
UPS opened the first segment of the expansion last July.
