ATLANTA — United Parcel Service (UPS) will create 1,250 jobs and invest more than $400 million to establish a regional sorting and distribution hub in Atlanta by the end of 2018.

“Georgia demonstrates an enduring commitment to industry leaders and job creators,” Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal said in a news release. “With this investment, UPS will use Georgia’s location, transportation infrastructure and logistics sector to reach customers more quickly and more efficiently. UPS is already making a substantial economic impact in the Atlanta area and we look forward to the company’s continued success.”

UPS will create supervision, administrative and warehouse positions for the new sorting and distribution hub.
