UPS (NYSE:UPS) recently celebrated the opening of a new USD 1.5 million logistics center in Nankan, Taoyuan. Known as NK2, the 145,000 square-foot facility provides services for both bonded and non-bonded carriers with a total of over 3,800 pallet positions and 3,000 shelving locations, increasing UPS’s total storage capacity in Taiwan by more than 30%.
