Event Details

GMA Member ONLY Tour

Tour participants will see the new 1.2M sq. ft. high-speed processing facility and its ability to reduce time-in-transit and enhance flexibility within UPSs efficient SMART hub-and-spoke network.  The Atlanta hub can process approximately 100,000 parcels per hour via a highly orchestrated series of conveyors, chutes, belts and ramps, into waiting trailers for transfer to another UPS location, or into package delivery vehicles bound for area businesses and residents.

The Southeast Metropolitan Automated Routing Terminal (SMART) is the second largest ground package processing facility in the United States and fourth largest package operation in the UPS worldwide network. The new Atlanta sortation and delivery center is part of an expanded network of regional hubs designed to improve efficiency, service levels and reliability.

UPS employs more than 14,000 people across Georgia in package delivery operations, ground freight, aircraft operations, data center management and contract logistics.  Product and technology development, global transportation network planning and other corporate functions are also based in metro Atlanta.  Atlanta has been home to UPS’s global headquarters for more than 25 years.
