Air freight: UPS expands.


UPS Expands. Slated for completion in October, a $3.5 million, 30,000-square-foot cargo facility in Anchorage is being built by United Parcel Service of Greenwich, Conn., to sort packages and support ground handling, aircraft maintenance and flight operations. Expansion at the 6.3 acre site, to be leased from the Anchorage International Airport, will enable the firm to better handle increasing volume and to accommodate increased growth if the carrier lands a new Tokyo-U.S. all-cargo route.

The UPS expansion will generate new landing fee revenues for the Anchorage airport. If the carrier should receive the Japan route authority, revenue to the airport is projected to escalate more than $350,000 annually.

UPS, which last year employed 159 people in Anchorage, also is providing engineering and design support to a $9 million airport project to increase aircraft parking and extend the airport's fuel system. The firm plans to lease four of six aircraft pads in the new apron area.
