Handling company Cargo Force is opening four new facilities in the US for mail and express in partnership with United States Postal Service (USPS) under a $100m, seven-year contract. The new facilities, in Seattle, Washington; San Diego, California; Detroit, Michigan; and Orlando, Florida, cover 173,000 square feet in total and will create 255 new jobs. The Seattle facility opened its doors on 4 October, and the San Diego, Detroit, and Orlando facilities are due to follow on 1 November.
Cargo Force chief executive, Jared Azcuy, said: “The opening of these new facilities expands the 26 years of partnership we have developed with USPS and broadens our customer offerings across the US.
“The extension of our relationship with USPS will see Cargo Force begin providing mail handling services at four new locations, as well as continuing to provide these services at the existing sites across Jacksonville International Airport, Florida, and Eppley Airfield, Nebraska. This represents considerable business growth for Cargo Force and is an important step as we seek to expand our North American footprint.”
