UPS Expanding Healthcare-Support Network in Latin America
By: UPS April 15, 2014
UPS is adding three facilities in Latin America dedicate to supporting the healthcare industry.
The move addresses strong growth in medical-device and pharmaceutical markets throughout the region, the company said. In the months ahead, it plans to open or expand facilities near Mexico City, Mexico; S„o Paulo, Brazil, and Santiago, Chile. The additions will expand UPSís network to reach nearly 70 percent of healthcare and manufacturing markets in Latin America. In Mexico, a multi-client facility now includes nearly 78,000 square feet of healthcare-dedicated space. In Brazil, a new location offers 80,000 square feet of space, to open in the third quarter of this year. And in Chile, an expansion project will include 21,000 square feet of dedicated space.
