Over 450 people work at YYZR, moving up to 12,000 packages per hour through the system each day. The computer control centre relies on 88 cameras facility-wide to know when to turn conveyor belts on and off, and provides in-depth control capabilities. Conveyer lines can be reallocated to effectively create "detours" around problem areas. The inter-connected conveyor system stretches across 12,141 feet (over 3,700 meters) and up three stories. YYZR state-of-the-art operations offer continuous performance throughout the facility to handle increased package volume more efficiently.
