LOUISVILLE, Ky. — United Parcel Service said plans for a "superhub" package sorting center will be delayed for at least a year while the company works on a new design.
The state sold bonds last December to finance the 950,000-square-foot, two-story complex, and construction had been scheduled to start this past spring, said Ken Sternad, UPS spokesman.
He said the company decided to redesign the air-delivery hub at Standiford Field after expanding the areas it serves and introducing a letter and small package service in June.
That business has grown rapidly enough for UPS to re-examine its plans for the new complex, Sternad said.
He said construction probably won't begin until next spring at the earliest. UPS has until December, 1987, to spend the $160 million of low-cost financing provided by the bond issue.
