New UPS hub could deliver 1,000+ jobs to the East Midlands

Parcel delivery firm UPS could be bringing more than 1,000 new jobs to a site near East Midlands Airport if recently submitted plans are accepted.

According to the Derby Telegraph, the firm wants to build a £114m sorting and delivery air freight terminal to the East of the Castle Donington airport, expanding on its already large air gateway presence in the UK.

The paper reports a design and access statement submitted as part of a planning application to North West Leicestershire District Council shows the 24-hour operation could employ 936 people within two years and 1,392 within eight years.
