“We are extremely pleased to welcome Air Canada Cargo to our Pharma.Aero global community. As a Canadian, and as a Chairman of Pharma.Aero, I am proud to see Canada enlarging its footprint in our organization, as it is one of the leading countries in Life Science manufacturing. It is our vision and mission, as a cross-industry organization, to have a strong presence on all continents, especially in North America, to get different perspectives of our industry and to offer worldwide visibility to our new members and partners,” said Trevor Caswell, Chairman of Pharma.Aero Board of Directors.

In addition to the cold chain facility, Air Canada Cargo also utilizes an extensive list of industry recognized active containers, including live-monitored, temperature-controlled certified aircraft containers, like the Envirotainer Releye RLP and larger RAP, as part of the AC Absolute solution.
