Airfreight wholesaler Air Menzies International (AMI) has opened a new branch near Toronto Pearson International Airport in Canada.

The new branch is AMI’s second in Canada and will offer a variety of wholesale airfreight services, including door-to-door services on global import and export shipments; exports with consolidation and ‘Back2Back’; ‘Quick2Ship’, AMI’s platform for express shipments; X-ray screening and warehousing services; as well as customs clearance and documentation support.

The Toronto branch will be headed up by Sam Wangpeng, country manager for Canada. Wangpeng has over 25 years’ experience of working at a senior level in the freight forwarding industry in Canada, including multimodal freight transport experience.

He is also a Certified Customs Specialist (CCS) from the Canadian Society of Customs Brokers (CSCB) and a CIFFA (Canadian International Freight Forwarder Association) accredited Professional Freight Forwarder (PFF).

“Enabling continued growth in our air freight services across the world’s most important global trade lines is a high priority and this expansion gives us a strong foothold in the major Canadian hub of cross border trade with the US,” said Jonathan Clark, chief executive, AMI, part of Menzies Aviation.

“We are looking forward to leveraging the strong, long-term growth potential that the marketplace has to offer. I am also pleased to welcome Sam Wangpeng to the team. His expertise, local knowledge and experience will be a huge asset for us.”   

Toronto brings AMI’s presence in North America to a total of nine branches including seven in the US: New York, Chicago, Miami, Atlanta, Dallas, Los Angeles and Seattle.

The company’s global network spans 11 countries, 27 locations and 250 worldwide network partners.
