Air Canada Opens Modern New Cargo Terminal at Toronto Hub

21st Jan 2002

Air Canada Cargo has completed its move to a new
facility in Toronto designed to ensure continued customer service excellence
and to position the airline`s cargo division for significant future growth at
its busiest hub.

“Our new Toronto cargo facility reinforces Air Canada`s reputation for
leading-edge technology and first-rate service,” said Claude Morin, Vice
President, Cargo. “The modern, automated terminal provides significantly
increased capacity and efficiency, as well as numerous enhancements designed
to meet the needs of our valued customers.”


The new airport infield facility is designed to accommodate Air Canada
Cargo`s future growth, with 50 per cent more capacity, 42 per cent more cargo
door access and ample customer parking. The new cargo terminal is an integral
part of the Greater Toronto Airport Authority`s 10-year master plan to
redesign and modernize Pearson International Airport.



The facility`s fully automated system will use modern conveyer systems
that allow for efficient storage and retrieval of cargo. Equipped with a new
Inventory Control System (ICS) that interfaces with Air Canada`s global cargo
network, the facility is one of the most technically advanced in the world.
Conveniently located on the airport`s west side, it is close to both Canada
Customs and Agriculture Canada and houses an Agriculture Canada office as part
of its Live Handling annex.

For more detailed information and directions to the new facility, visit
