As we dive into the dirtier and less flashy side of the airport, here's a quick look at a heavy cargo aircraft which has just landed.
The main distribution and sorting center for all air cargo is this warehouse on site. Everything gets processed through this facility regardless of whether it is for local delivery or just changing planes. Mail and residential packages will also go through this building but are then picked up here by their respective Bricksburgh services.
Though small inside, the warehouse does have a nice office area with integrated computer systems and room for sorting the various boxes and crates that need to be processed here.
The airlines have their own cargo/mail/freight operations but at Bricksburgh Airport they work very closely with the main cargo staff and share a lot of equipment. Here you can see a high-lift truck (aka elevator truck) on its way out of the security gate to make deliveries downtown. Usually these deliveries are for items that are unusual or otherwise shipped separately from the main postal service.
