For many years UPS has had a presence in Greensboro, whose airport is home to several hubs of logistics providers, including FedEx. UPS has more than 2,800 employees in the triad, the Triad Business Journal reported. Greensboro was competing with Memphis, Tennessee, for expansion, according to the Department of Commerce.
The jobs have an average minimum wage of around $ 65,000.
To receive the incentives, UPS must meet several investment and hiring milestones. The hiring for the positions is expected to be completed by 2025.
In September, UPS received approval to build a 525,000 square foot facility in Mebane, which Mebane Enterprise says can process around 45,000 packages per hour.
