UPS has opened a new logistics center for sorting and delivering parcels in Tuchoměřice near Prague. The 8,500 m2 facility is equipped with modern technology and can handle up to 5,000 parcels per hour, five times the capacity of the original center in Prague-Ruzyně. The company is thus responding to the growing demand for e-commerce. UPS headquarters for the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Ukraine and Eastern Europe will also be located here.
This facility was built in accordance with the international BREAM Very Good environmental certification. The center is part of the company's multi-year, USD 2bn investment plan in Europe. UPS intends to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050, with 40% of its ground operations running on alternative fuels by 2025. By 2035, it plans to power all of its facilities with 100% renewable electricity.
