    US freight and logistics firm United Parcel
    > Service (UPS) said Wednesday it is relocating its

    > three years.
    > Andy Connelly, UPS senior vice president for
    > South Asia Pacific, said the new intra-Asia hub in
    > Shenzhen, China will be operational by 2010.
    > The new facility, with a total land area of
    > 89,000 sq mts, will launch 100 flights per week and
    > employ 400 people. It has the capacity to process
    > 18,000 packages an hour, Connelly said.
    > 'In the past few years, the increase in
    > trend was moving towards north of Asia,' he said.
    > 'About 75 percent of the intra-Asia package volume
    > shift to North Asia, and the decision was made to
    > handle the packages close to our clients.'
    > Connelly noted that China, Hong Kong, Japan,
    > South Korea and Taiwan now account for more than
    > half of UPS' total intra-Asia volume.
    > 'Given the growth in shipping in southern
    > China, it makes sense to sort and dispatch this
    > volume from a hub closer to our customers,' he said.
    > Connelly said UPS will retain its operations
    > in the Clark industrial zone in the northern
    > Philippines, but on a scaled-down level.
    > In the next three years, UPS will downsize
    > the number of employees in Clark to 70 from the
    > current 200. Flights will also be reduced to two a
    > day from the current nine.
