UPS adding up to 300 jobs in Louisville

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) – Kentucky officials say UPS plans to add up to 300 new full- and part-time jobs in Louisville.

The extra jobs are part of a nearly $310 million investment the package-delivery giant plans in its ground-shipping operation.

The announcement was made Thursday by Gov. Steve Beshear and Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer.

Atlanta-based UPS is expanding its Centennial Ground Hub facility in Louisville due to increased e-commerce and traditional retail package volume.

The project will greatly expand the company’s current sorting capacity and add sorting automation equipment.

Construction will begin next year and is expected to finish by 2019.
