As part of an ongoing effort to improve service to customers and maintain an efficient network throughout the Northeast, UPS Freight reopened its service center in Nanuet, N.Y.

The Nanuet Service Center is positioned near several major thoroughfares, including the New York State Thruway (Interstates 87/287), Palisades Interstate Parkway and New Jersey's Garden State Parkway. It also is located near New York State routes 59 and 304.

The existing 32-door Nanuet facility was closed in 2005 after UPS Freight opened a new service center in Newburgh, N.Y. However, a recent evaluation of shipment volume as well as the number of miles driven for pickups and deliveries in the area pointed to the need to re-establish the Nanuet facility.

The facility employs about 30 people, and its service area includes White Plains, Yonkers and New Rochelle, N.Y.; Mahwah, Ramsey, Northvale and Emerson, N.J.; and Stamford, Norwalk and Greenwich, Conn.
