International export by air freight
Air transport is the preferred mode of shipment for urgent deliveries or products with a high added value.
It is a more expensive form of transportation that, in return, best accommodates goods requiring short delivery times for certain industries who trade internationally.
Increases in the production of perishable products, pharmaceuticals and electronic components are creating an increased demand for air freight transportation.
The airplane, a popular mode of freight transportation in Canada
Transport Canada owns 23 national airports and 18 regional airports.
Canadian exporters have no choice but to consider this mode of transportation, given the country’s geographic location.
Apart from maritime transport, it is the only mode of cross-Atlantic transport of merchandise.
If maritime transport covers 90% of international freight transport, air transport is best suited for a particular niche of goods.
Inland freight transport is also boosting the demand of air freight in Canada: dispersed populations, particularly in the north of the country, have no option but to move their goods by air.
This choice entails a degree of organization that often requires the involvement of transport logistics consulting companies in order to optimize the profitability of such transports.
