    UPS begins work on Intra-Asia air cargo hub - Atlanta Business Chronicle

    United Parcel Service Inc. broke ground Friday on a previously announced $180 million Intra-Asia air cargo hub in Shenzen, China.

    The nearly 1 million-square-foot facility will replace an air hub in Papanga, Philippines, and become UPS’ primary transit hub in Asia. The UPS Shenzhen Intra-Asia hub will be built on 958,000 square feet of land and will include a dedicated 1.6 million-square-foot ramp provided by Shenzhen Airport, an express customs handling unit, sorting facilities and cargo handling areas.
