Cargojet all set for record peak season

Cargojet has said it is prepared for the peak season boost in air cargo demand, fuelled by the growth of e-commerce.
The Canadian freighter operator said it is expecting record peak season volumes from its overnight network customers this year.
“The tremendous growth of on-line shopping by Canadians is definitely contributing to increased demand for Cargojet’s time sensitive overnight air cargo services by all of our customers," said Ajay Virmani, president and chief executive.
"All of our major customers have given us extremely heavy and challenging Peak demands and forecasts.
“Cargojet’s overnight network is able to expand capacity as demand increases and we are fully prepared to meet our customer’s peak shipping season requirements to ensure all shipments are flown to various destinations to meet holiday deliveries.”
While demand at the airline is fuelled by growth in e-commerce demand, Cargojet has also won some big contracts in recent years.
This year it has launched services to Latin America, via the US, and also Europe for Air Canada. In April 2015, Cargojet won a contract to provide Canada Post with a domestic air network.
