Though not the biggest building in the world, Worldport comprises 5.1 million square feet and incorporates some of the most advanced package-sorting technology that exists today. The system is designed to sort everything efficiently, getting letters, boxes, and other packages off the planes they arrive on and on to the planes they will be sent out on in the shortest possible amount of time and with the minimum amount of human handling.
Here, Worldport workers pull an "air can," a large bin that is packed tightly with packages and loaded onto cargo planes, off a Boeing 757.
