Cargojet announced that it has entered into a three-year agreement with China-based Great Vision HK Express to provide scheduled charter services —from Hangzhou, China to Vancouver, B.C., and from Vancouver, B.C. to Hangzhou, China — utilizing B767-300F aircraft.


The service will cater to the rapidly expanding Chinese e-commerce sector. Cargojet said it will operate a minimum of three flights per week and began service on May 22, 2024. Eight flights have been successfully completed to date.


The program's total revenue is estimated at over CAD $160 million (US$117 million) for the full term of the agreement.


"Leveraging Cargojet's industry-leading record of on-time performance and reliability, together with the connection opportunities from Vancouver to fifteen other cities in Canada, will allow Great Vision HK to provide enhanced services for China-based e-commerce service providers to their customers across Canada," said Jamie B. Porteous, co-chief executive officer.


"We continue to explore opportunities to maximize asset and aircraft utilization and look forward to a strong partnership with Great Vision HK," added Pauline Dhillon, co-chief executive officer.


Christine Cheng, co-founder and chief operating officer at Great Vision HK, described the deal as an "important milestone for Great Vision HK."


"We've partnered with Cargojet, another industry leader in Canada, to provide top-quality transportation services to our customers in Asia," she said.


Great Vision HK provides its customers with China-to-Canada-to-China end-to-end integrated logistics supply chain solutions, including pick up, pre-sorting, international air freight, customs clearance, distribution, last-mile delivery and after-sales services.


"International air freight is a key part of this logistical chain, and we believe through this strategic partnership with Cargojet that we can offer extremely reliable and efficient services to our customers while continuing to promote trade between the two countries," Cheng added.


Cargojet provides time-sensitive, premium air cargo services to all major cities across North America. It provides Dedicated, ACMI and International Charter services and carries over 25,000,000 pounds of cargo weekly.


Cargojet operates its network with its own fleet of 41 aircraft.
