Cargo Force has signed a seven-year contract extension with the United States Postal Service (USPS) worth US$100 million.
As part of the extended 26-year partnership, the low cost international air freight shipping service is opening four new facilities across the US to facilitate mail and express mail services in partnership with USPS.
Cargo Force said the new facilities – located in Seattle, Washington; San Diego, California; Detroit, Michigan; and Orlando, Florida – will create 255 new jobs across the four sites.
Cargo Force’s CEO Jared Azcuy said: “The opening of these new facilities expands 26 years of partnership we have developed with USPS and broadens our customer offerings across the United States.
“The extension of our relationship with USPS will see Cargo Force begin providing mail handling services at four new locations, as well as continuing to provide these services at the existing sites across Jacksonville International Airport, Florida, and Eppley Airfield, Nebraska.”
The new Seattle facility opened on 4 October. The San Diego, Detroit, and Orlando facilities are scheduled to open on 1 November.
