Worldport: The UPS Sort Facility

Beginning in 1999, UPS undertook the largest capital project in the company’s history with the $1 billion expansion of Worldport – the UPS sort facility at Louisville International Airport.

The second expansion was completed in April 2010, with the mammoth facility now measuring 5.2 million square feet, with a perimeter of 7.2 miles.
