    United Parcel Service has announced its bid for a regional service hub at the former Boeing C-17 man - Cerritos Community News

    United Parcel Service has announced its bid for a regional service hub at the former Boeing C-17 manufacturing site, in a proposal that could bring 2,500 jobs to Long Beach, a UPS spokesman said Monday.

    The 93-acre site adjacent to Long Beach Airport was once the production home for Boeing’s C-17 Globemaster III cargo plane before the aerospace giant shuttered the facility in 2015.

    The massive complex, which includes a 1.1 million-square-foot assembly building, was listed for sale in November.

    UPS spokesman Bruce MacRae on Monday said the shipping giant is eyeing the Boeing property for a regional hub that would service the Long Beach area while also utilizing the nearby airport.
