By Ocean or Air - No Last Minute Surprises

Kuehne + Nagel ensures that your sensitive cargo receives the best possible care through our strategically located perishables specialists in Canada and around the world.

Our extensive knowledge of cargo temperature requirements, global expertise in climatic variations, and range of services - including access to state-of-the-art specialized equipment - provides you with the assurance that your temperature-controlled product reaches its final destination in the proper condition.

Fast and Reliable Service Guaranteed

Perishables transported by Air are cleared and recovered immediately upon arrival. Delivery takes place as soon as your goods have cleared customs and after any possible inspection  at the airport. Most importantly, we pre-advise you of the estimated delivery time while the cargo is still in mid-air. Same day delivery is available in your local city and next day delivery anywhere in Canada.
