Congressman Pete King Visits UPS Facility in Farmingdale
United Parcel Service is the world's largest package delivery company and a major employer on Long Island, including 1,000 employees who reside in the 2nd Congressional District. Recently I had the opportunity to once again visit the UPS facility in Farmingdale where I walked through the loading docks and spoke with many of the employees. Having loaded and unloaded trucks and freight cars many years ago at the Railway Express terminal on the West Side of Manhattan, it was interesting to see just how much the process has been improved and expedited. I also appreciated being able to congratulate the employees who were honored for their years of outstanding service. It was reassuring to see how effectively UPS has adjusted to the expanded and competitive e-commerce economy and continues to provide needed jobs to America's workers.
