Courier service expanding in BC

The United Parcel Service, one of the largest shipment and logistics companies in the world, is expanding its reach in BC.

They’ve announced the Canadian arm of the company will be opening up three new operating centres in the province, and expanding another.

UPS pickup and delivery services for its Kamloops customers began earlier this week, and will soon include Nanaimo and Comox on Vancouver Island. The Kelowna location will also see an expansion of its current space.

"Expanding our service in BC and across Canada is fueled by market opportunity and customer demand," says UPS Canada President Michael Tierney.

"UPS continues to invest in new capabilities and network capacity to secure customers' confidence and enable their long-term growth."

The multi-million dollar expansion will see 80 new jobs brought into the four communities.
