Just in time opening of new UPS hub readies Canada for its holiday shipping peak - Business Insider

"It's like watching a child taking its first steps," are the words that come to mind when Gordon Reed is asked how he feels about seeing UPS Canada's largest package sorting and delivery facility up and running. As the director for special projects in UPS's industrial engineering department, Gordon has spent a lot of work and long hours getting the massive, 850,000 square foot facility in Caledon, Ontario online. "This project is close to my heart and our whole team is so proud that we could get this facility operational in time when it is most needed."

The new hub has begun operations in anticipation for the annual increase in volume that will start around Cyber Week and continue through January 2021. Part of a $500 million Canada investment plan announced in 2018, the facility features advanced scanning and sortation technology, integrated with data-driven tools to increase efficiency and reliability for UPS's customers in one of the fastest growing provinces in Canada.

You know what happens after that--the child falls down and cries and craps its pants.
