Caledon welcomes UPS Canada

Read this online

The Town of Caledon is the home for UPS Canada’s new $200 million, 850,000 sq. ft. advanced scanning and sortation facility. The small package operations hub will provide UPS with additional processing and service capacity to the GTA.

Fully automated, the new Caledon facility, anticipated to open in late 2020, will sort up to 35,000 packages per hour and house a fleet of more than 200 package cars.

"I'm extremely pleased and proud to welcome the highly respected global logistics company United Parcel Service (UPS), to the Town of Caledon," said Allan Thompson, Mayor of Caledon. "This development will create jobs, bolster our local economy and at 850,000 square feet, will be the largest UPS facility in Canada."

Located near Caledon’s southern border (see location map), the new UPS facility is well-positioned to serve the GTA, with close access to Highway 410 and Mayfield Road (which is currently undergoing a major expansion eastward to Airport Road). 

UPS Canada is the second major logistics / distribution facility to locate in this area in recent years. Its immediate neighbour to the south on Dixie Road is Acklands Grainger, which opened its 535,000 sq. ft. distribution centre in 2015. 

The UPS announcement  is the latest in a string of major investments in Caledon and confirms Caledon’s prime location as a staging point for access to the GTA.

Companies such as Amazon, Canadian Tire, Agrocrop Exports Ltd., and Mars Canada have all announced major investments in Caledon.

In the past two years, Caledon has added over 3.4 million sq. ft. (316,000 m2) of industrial space, bringing over 1,900 jobs to our community. Final job numbers for the new Caledon UPS location will be determined closer to the facility opening.
