    UPS Purchases $18.3 Million in Property in Massachusetts - Transport Topics

    United Parcel Service has purchased properties in Shrewsbury, Mass., and Grafton, Mass., for $18.3 million as it considers whether to build a $200 million distribution facility in the area.

    The Atlanta-based package delivery company bought the properties, covering about 226 acres of undeveloped land, from three different entities, according to Nov. 15 filings in the Worcester County Registry of Deeds.

    UPS was cautious in its remarks about the purchase.

    “The Shrewsbury and Grafton area is one of the locations UPS is considering to further optimize our ground network across the Northeast,” the company said in an emailed statement. “The property acquisition is one of many initial steps in the feasibility and planning process for the proposed project.”
