United Parcel Service warehouses, also known as distribution centers, serve as transfer and routing points for packages as well as storage and shipping facilities for contracted vendors. Freight trucks, UPS fleet vehicles and air transfer couriers deliver packages to the warehouses. During unloading, packages and document envelopes are scanned, routed and loaded into the appropriate carriers for the next leg of delivery. Warehouse employees are trained to perform visual checks of packaging and make any necessary repairs to damaged boxes or envelopes.

Some locations of United Parcel Service warehouses have contracts to service shipments for companies. Sections of the warehouses are reserved for the storing and shipping of vendor or company products and supplies. As of 2015, Pratt & Whitney, an aircraft engine company, has contracts with UPS warehouses in Londonderry, New Hampshire, as well as Atlanta, Georgia; West Palm Beach, Florida; Dallas, Texas; and Venlo, Netherlands.
