Cargojet has entered into a three-year agreement with Great Vision HK Express to provide scheduled charter services between Hangzhou, China, and Vancouver, B.C. This agreement aims to cater to the growing Chinese e-commerce sector. Cargojet is using its B767-300F aircraft to serve this route.

The Canadian air cargo service provider launched its operations on May 22, 2024, with a plan to operate a minimum of three flights per week. The service has been successful so far, with a total of eight completed flights. An official release stated that the program is expected to generate over 160 million Canadian dollars (around USD 117 million) in total revenue for the duration 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, Cargojet.

In the official release, Cargojet's Co-Chief Executive Officer Pauline Dhillon said, "We continue to explore opportunities to maximise asset and aircraft utilisation and look forward to a strong partnership with Great Vision HK."

In addition, Christine Cheng, co-founder and Chief Operating Officer at Great Vision HK, said, "This is an important milestone for Great Vision HK, and we've partnered with Cargojet, another industry leader in Canada, to provide top-quality transportation services to our customers in Asia."

Great Vision HK offers end-to-end logistics solutions from China to Canada and back, including pick-up, air freight, customs clearance, and delivery.
