Let your system evolve through phases Pallet Masters with integrated weighing system at AviaPartner Cargo in Liège (LGG), Belgium New Air Canada Cargo facility at Pierre Elliot Trudeau Airport, Montréal (YUL), Canada Due to major changes of the facilities at Montréal Airport, a new 16,000 m2 cargo terminal was built in the North Cargo Complex for Air Canada Cargo and put into operation in November 2008.
