UPS will shut down its air cargo operation at the Decatur Airport February 16th.
The good news is all of its employees still have jobs. A UPS spokesman says most of its 14 employees have been relocated within the company locally. Only one man had to move.
Now packages will be flown in and out of Peoria and transported through our area by truck. UPS decided to close its Decatur operation because of the declining global economy.
