UPS has opened two new air connections from Gdańsk airport and Copernicus airport in Wrocław, Poland.
”It’s like our customers were waiting for this moment”, says Grażyna Kur, a UPS Air supervisor at Gdańsk airport. ”It was definitely a challenge to get this new air gateway completed during the pandemic, but our people really stepped up to get it done and now the gateway is functioning as if it has always been here.”
The airports join UPS’s existing air connections in Warsaw, Katowice and Poznań. The new air connections, which have a joint daily capacity of over 11 tons, UPS customers in the Lower Silesia and Gdansk regions will now be offered three to five extra hours per day to collect customer orders that can be shipped the same day.
“Efficient, fast and reliable supply chains are an essential competitive advantage for any business,” says Piotr Sitarek, country manager for UPS Poland. “They can significantly lower costs, reduce the time to market, and increase customer satisfaction. These new air connections will help more Polish companies get more of their products to markets around the world faster and more efficiently, and help their businesses to flourish. They exemplify our company’s purpose of keeping the world moving by delivering what matters.”
One of the local businesses that stands to benefit from the new air connections is Sandvik, a global engineering company in materials technology and industrial processes and employs 40,000 people, “We are very pleased about the introduction of the new air connections, as it significantly accelerates the delivery of our products, which is of critical importance for the timely processing of orders for our customers,” commented Sandvik’s Dominika Buczko.
UPS has now increased its air connections across Poland to a total of five.
