“UPS is transforming our operations to provide innovative solutions that serve the changing needs of small, medium and large businesses. Doubling our Whitescreek hub’s size and capacity, and powering it with UPS’s advanced technology help enable our customers to grow their business,” said Cher Porties, president of UPS’s Mid-South District. “We are excited to generate new jobs and further contribute to Nashville and Middle Tennessee’s rapid growth.”
