“Today is a great day for Air Canada Cargo as it reaches another milestone in its development,” said Jason Perry, Vice President of Cargo, Air Canada. These advanced temperature-controlled facilities are unique to Air Canada and will support the continued growth of the Air Canada Cargo business, along with the entry into service of our cargo ship. This investment, and other subsequent investments, will allow us to better serve our customers and I am very excited about Air Canada Cargo’s prospects. »

The renovated facilities include about 2,800 square meters of temperature-controlled areas and a larger cold room, which perfectly adapts to the requirements of shipments that must respect the cold chain, such as medicines, fresh food and other perishable products. These upgrades are the first step in a multi-year facilities investment plan and are integrated with many of Air Canada Cargo’s infrastructure investment projects.

To contribute to Air Canada’s long-term carbon neutral goal, work also included installing energy-efficient equipment, such as thermal controllers that would constantly monitor conditions inside the building and only control the temperature as needed, to consume less energy. In addition, the cold room is equipped with high-speed folding doors to reduce energy loss during the entry and exit of personnel storing or removing goods there. The facilities are fully equipped with LED lighting which also reduces energy consumption.
