โ€œWe have been doing business in our Philippines hub for more than 25 years, helping to connect businesses to markets in Asia Pacific and beyond. The investments UPS continues to make through this expansion will enhance time in transit across Asia Pacific and continue to deliver service reliability for our customers and position UPS for long term growth,โ€ explains Wilfredo Ramos, president, UPS Asia Pacific.

โ€œThe collaboration between UPS and LIPAD marks a major achievement in positioning Clark as a premier logistics hub for international brands seeking to launch or grow their global presence, โ€œsaid Noel Manankil, LIPAD President and CEO.

According to Mr. Manankil, โ€œThis expansion is part of the efforts of LIPAD in project land development, as stipulated in its concession agreement with the Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BCDA).โ€

Construction of the new Clark hub is set to begin in February 2025, and it is expected to be operational in late 2026.

LIPAD Chairperson Josephine Gotianun-Yap says, โ€œUPSโ€™s expansion in Clark will bring positive changes to Pampanga, providing job opportunities for the local community and serving as an economic stimulus in the region.โ€

The agreement is the latest in a series of recent network and facility enhancements UPS has made across Asia Pacific including in Singapore, Japan, China, Vietnam, South Korea, Taiwan, and most recently Hong Kong, where UPS announced it will open a new state-of-the-art facility in 2028.

โ€œAsia Pacific continues to be one of UPSโ€™s fastest growing regions. UPS has continued to invest in our network to maximize speed and flexibility, build solutions addressing the shift of global trade lanes, and offer resilience for our customers,โ€ Ramos added.

Since 2022, UPS has also invested intensively in its Healthcare business introducing UPS Premier โ€“ which provides priority handling for time- and temperature-sensitive, and patient-critical products โ€“ in nine markets across the Asia Pacific region. In 2023, the company added over 22,000 square meters of cold chain enabled handling, storage and distribution space via new healthcare facilities in Singapore and Australia. An additional 12,000 square meters is planned for 2024.
