"UPS is the kind of company we want in Canada, one that invests in its people and creates better opportunities for hard working folks to get ahead. I am thrilled they will expand their Canadian operations, invest in our economy, and create so many good, well-paying middle class jobs for Canadians,” said Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
“UPS Canada is capitalizing on customer growth and solid operating leverage,” stated UPS Chairman & CEO David Abney. “Strong returns coupled with continued customer demand create an optimal time for this investment that we expect to even further contribute to Canada’s vibrant economy.”
