Purolator enhances air network as demand for express shipping continues to rise

May 5, 2021

TORONTO, May 5, 2021 — Purolator today announced it is enhancing its express air network capacity through a new service agreement with Voyageur Aviation Corp, a subsidiary of Chorus Aviation Inc. (TSX: CHR) and headquartered in North Bay, Ont. Purolator can now offer more service options as its cross-border and overall business continues to grow.

“Purolator is always investing in our network to meet the needs of our customers,” says Chris Spanjaard, Senior Vice President and Chief Operations Officer, Purolator. “This agreement with Voyageur complements our existing network and enhances our capability to service our cross-border business and customers with high-priority express shipments.”

With one of the most extensive networks in Canada, Purolator will gain more service options for cross-border shipments by adding this capability. This includes giving Canadian businesses and consumers more access to the broad product diversity the U.S. marketplace offers.

"We are delighted to have established this relationship with Purolator and look forward to introducing our Dash 8-100 PF to expand capacity. With a growing and innovative business, we are honoured that Purolator has chosen Voyageur to support increasing service to their valued customers," said Scott Tapson, President of Voyageur Aviation Corp.

In addition to adding capacity through expanded relationships with air cargo partners in Canada, Purolator continues to expand its services across North America. This latest enhancement is part of a series of network infrastructure investments the company is making to stay ahead of its customers’ evolving needs.
