Brock Solutions is thrilled to be a part of the Toronto Pearson International Airport’s (YYZ) Baggage 2025 expansion project with the Greater Toronto Airports Authority (GTAA). Brock Solutions will be working alongside a variety of different firms, such as Beumer Group and partner PCL Construction, and B+H Architects to name a few, in hopes of accommodating for new growth, capacity and efficiency at YYZ. The projects scope consists of upgrading the existing baggage-handling system (BHS) with Beumer’s CrisBag, an automated tote-based baggage transport and sortation system. According to Beumer, the new system will be 100% tracked and traceable at every stage of the baggage-handling process, which will meet the requirements with the Canadian Air Transport Security Authority (CATSA) and US clearance authorities.

“As Toronto Pearson’s passenger traffic continues to see significant growth, the GTAA recognizes the importance of planning to meet the demands of a future airport that could grow to welcome over 80 million annual passengers in the next 20 years,” stated Howard Eng, president and CEO at GTAA.

The innovative solution presented by Beumer and PLC will prepare YYZ for efficient baggage sortation airport-wide, which will in turn meet the forecasted need for 80 million pieces of luggage to be sorted per year by 2030. Brock Solutions is honoured to take part in this innovative expansion and looks forward to meeting the needs of an airport so close to home. Read the full article here.
