Giant Reefer For Air Canada Cargo @ YYZ

Air Canada Giant Reefer @ YYZ

  As Air Canada Cargo gets ready to receive the first of eight B767 all-cargo freighters during Q4 of this year, in a landmark move as the only major North American combination carrier in the past two decades to go long and deep, Matthieu Casey, Senior Director Global Sales & Revenue Optimization is very optimistic:
  “Now we are underway building a new state-of-the-art cold chain facility in Greater Toronto Airports Authority Toronto Airport as the next logical step, that will be a 3,000 square foot facility that fully aligns with the rollout of our initial freighter network, which will serve strong perishable markets.
  “Investing in our cold chain handling capabilities is a critical part of our strategy and expansion plans."
  “Starting in early 2022, the first freighter will fly primarily out of Toronto and operate to Miami, Quito, Lima, Mexico City and Guadalajara, with additional cities like Madrid and Frankfurt, Halifax and St. John's connecting to the freighter network when the second aircraft arrives in 2022.
  “We have made many changes and improvements to our pharmaceutical and perishable handling solutions in recent years, many driven by the International Air Transport Association (IATA) CEIV Pharma certification process, but also driven by working with our customers to understand their specific requirements.
  “In 2020, our operations teams also undertook a sweeping preparatory exercise to ensure we met the criteria for transporting COVID-19 vaccines.
  "Now we are going even deeper in our effort to significantly improve our overall offering to all forwarders who specialize in cold chain shipments.”
