UPS is building a $200-million, 850,000-sq.-ft. warehouse in Caledon.

The site on Dixie Rd. just north of the Acklands-Grainger warehouse will be a small package operations hub, providing additional processing and service capacity to the GTA to meet growing business and residential customer demand, the company said in a press statement.

Set to complete in late 2020, the fully-automated facility will sort up to 35,000 packages per hour and house a fleet of more than 200 package cars.

In March of this year, UPS announced plans to invest more than $500 million on warehouse expansions and technological enhancements in Canada. Construction of a $125-million, 180,000 sq. ft. expansion to the company’s Montreal hub, is almost complete. Earlier this month, the company unveiled a $15 million, 40,000-sq.-ft. facility in Kanata, Ontario, and has expanded its package centers in Brampton and London, Ontario and Edmonton, Alberta.

UPS employs approximately 6,000 people across Ontario and 12,000 across Canada.
