Huge UPS hub is big on freight

The United Parcel Service (UPS) operates the Worldport complex, a major hub next to the Louisville International Airport. Worldport generates a huge amount of freight each day, which is sorted using a highly-efficient automated system and sent on to final destinations. Most packages are collected during the day and sorted at smaller hubs around the world before being air-freighted to Worldport, where they arrive around midnight. In addition to air freight, the complex distributes rail freight through a nearby intermodal terminal. Recent expansions to the complex have improved its capacity, and officials are looking toward further development.
