    New technology facility designed to house 1,000 workers

    UPS today announced construction of a new global technology development center in Parsippany, NJ. The facility will serve as a new location for software developers, designers and other technology professionals – previously based in Paramus, NJ – to collaborate and develop innovative technology solutions that serve our customers, improve operational efficiencies, drive growth and run UPS’s global network.

    UPSers at this new location are part of the company’s global team that conceived, designed and developed industry-leading technologies that UPS customers use every day like UPS My Choice®, UPS CampusShip®, UPS WorldShip®, UPS® Tracking and other visibility tools. This specific group also supported the development of UPS® Package Flow Technologies, the company’s suite of solutions that has streamlined UPS’s scanning, automated sorting, driver dispatching and load-assist processes throughout its integrated delivery network.

    “UPS is known for its innovation, whether that means helping customers succeed with transportation and supply chain management solutions or giving consumers real-time visibility to their package at every step of the delivery cycle,” said Dave Barnes, UPS chief information officer. “This new facility will provide a collaborative setting for the creative team developing the UPS technology of tomorrow.”

    "We are proud UPS will be developing this state-of-the-art technology facility in New Jersey further demonstrating a firm commitment and faith in the state as a place to live, work and do business," said Governor Chris Christie. "UPS is another example of the economic growth and innovation that is continuing throughout our state. It's the success of companies like these in the private sector - not the government - that will grow our economy and create jobs."

    The 200,000 square-foot building located at 10 Upper Pond Road will sit on 20 acres. In demonstration of UPS’s commitment to sustainability and the environment, the facility was designed by HLW International to be LEED certified.

    “Each year, UPS invests approximately one billion dollars in technology,” added Juan Perez, UPS senior vice president of technology. “The significant investment in this location sets an environment for UPSers to continue to solve complex problems in transportation and logistics and to provide unmatched services to our customers using innovative technology.”

    The four-story office space, expected to open in mid-2017, is designed to promote collaboration, communication, efficiency and learning in a work environment that fosters creativity and problem solving. The building will also feature a full-service cafeteria, indoor fitness center and campus hiking trail.

    Sounds great Monkey Butt but us drivers have recently been victim of a technology that seems to screw the customers! Can't push and pull something and expect it to move.
