Cargo operations in action

Whether it’s a herd of 500 pound bison heading to Russia, a temperature sensitive pharma shipment or 150 tons of industrial equipment arriving in Edmonton, YEG Cargo has the infrastructure and expertise to ship all kinds of cargo.

During the pandemic, YEG remained one of the busiest cargo airports across Canada with multiple wide body flights every week from Asia, South America and Europe.  In June 2020, we hosted three AN-124’s within 24 hours, a unique and busy day!  We salute our freight forwarders and cargo partners for offloading millions of pieces of vital personal protective equipment and handling exponential new shipments for ecommerce.  You are cargo’s front-line essential workers.  We thank you!
