Cargojet to anchor Hamilton’s new logistics facility


Canadian all-cargo carrier, Cargojet will take up about half of the 7,154 sqm Air Cargo Logistics Facility at the Hamilton, Ontario airport, which is due to open in April 2015. The John C. Munro Hamilton International Airport is already the third busiest cargo airport in Canada in terms of volume and the Cargojet partnership is a “significant opportunity” to build on that, said Frank Scremin, president and CEO of the airport. Cargojet already has a presence at the airport. The company has recently signed new contracts with Canada Post and Purolator that could double the size of its business, said Ajay K. Virmani, president & CEO of Cargojet.

“Having secured the proper infrastructure and a partnership with Cargojet, Canada’s Cargo Airline, puts us in a great position to realise this,” said Scremin. Two-thirds of the terminal’s C$12 million (US$10.8 million) price tag is from the provincial and federal governments. The new terminal will include a 5,574 sqm cross dock facility with truck docking stations and refrigeration for flowers, fresh produce and pharmaceutical products.
