Abstract Download PDF

At its strategic location in South China, UPS’s Asia Pacific hub in Bao’an International Airport allows UPS to provide overnight delivery services to destinations in the Asia Pacific region. About 550 employees maintain round-the-clock operations at the hub, which houses separate sorting and handling facilities for express and cargo shipments, on-site customs office and processing – including China Inspection and Quarantine (CIQ) clearance for import commodities – and a dedicated 150,000 square meter ramp with 13 aircraft parking positions. Self-operated aircraft ground-handling provides UPS, as a logistics integrator, with greater control over the 86 weekly UPS flights in and out from the hub.
