General customer information

UPS has built the world’s largest air hub at Louisville International Airport, from which the company provides a worldwide air parcel service. The Worldport centre receives, sorts and dispatches millions of parcels a day, and transportation is handled by 80 to 120 flights a day, as well as by road freight. A key element of the project was the integration of the new sorting phases by Vanderlande. Over four years an impressive system was installed that included over 64 kilometres of conveyors, 76 POSISORTERs and 174 VERTISORTERs.
