    Southside UPS center to be ready by 2020 holidays - Jax Daily Record

    The $50 million distribution center plans to hire 87 workers, according to its incentives package.

    Jacksonville’s logistics reputation is further reinforced by a significant United Parcel Service Inc. investment in South Jacksonville, expanding the package delivery company beyond its large West Jacksonville hub system.

    By the 2020 holidays, UPS expects to have its new $50 million Southside package distribution center up and running. For now, the bulk of the project is in city review.

    Material Handling Systems Inc. is the contractor for the almost $30.7 million installation of conveyors for the UPS parcel shipping ground hub at 9431 Florida Mining Blvd. E.
