New all-cargo airline to emerge from Canada 3000 Cargo

by Canadian Shipper

Plans are being finalized for a Canadian all-cargo airline, details of which will be unveiled at a private celebration February 21, 2002 in Toronto, say Ajay Virmani, President & CEO of Canada 3000 Cargo Inc. and Flagship International Marketing Ltd.

The new company, controlled by Ajay Virmani, has completed the acquisition of Canada 3000 Cargo Inc., Canada’s only all-cargo airline and is presently servicing the Canadian market with four B727-200 freighters, one B737 freighter, two Beech 99 aircraft, and one Metro II
aircraft, for a total fleet of eight on a wet-lease basis.

The new company will begin operations under its new name on February 22, 2002, from its headquarters in Mississauga, Ontario, and will offer overnight air cargo transportation throughout the country, flying more than 300,000 lbs of time-sensitive shipments each business day.

“The creation of this new entity means Canadian businesses will have a dedicated cargo airline-a shipping resource focused on providing quality cargo service across this great country,” says Virmani.

“Our team of more than 200 employees has many years of experience handling a variety of shipments both large and small. We are committed to on-time delivery. In addition to being the primary overnight air cargo airline for Canada’s major couriers, freight forwarders and manufacturers, we transport a variety of goods requiring special care: from Nova Scotia lobster and BC tomatoes and cherries to livestock, auto parts, pharmaceuticals, high-tech products, and emergency
relief charters,” he says.

The new cargo airline will also serve the needs of shippers in Canada’s smaller centres and cities, such as Regina, Saskatoon, Moncton, and St. John’s, Newfoundland will enjoy daily cargo service at a reasonable price, says Virmani.
