Forwarders Inc. is an approved IATA Cargo Agent. We are based in Montreal, one of the main entry doors of
North America, in a bonded facility with 20,000 square feet of warehouse space for breakbulk purposes.
Our mission is to position AIRTRADES as a strategic partner for the transportation needs of our clients.
We are achieving our goal in the following ways:
>> Partnership: We
build long-term relationship with our clients. We believe that it is the best way to insure trust and honesty between us. Once this partnership is built,
both parties can focus on the results.
>> Availability: We are not a "take-a-number-and-wait-your-turn" company. At AIRTRADES, we are proud to provide you with a personalized service. We know you, we know your business and we are involved in your needs.
>> Strategic services: We
position ourselves as a 3rd party logistic provider (3PL). That means that we coordinate the work of the
airlines, agents, trucking companies, customs brokers and steamship lines to provide our clients with a complete and integrated service, so they can focus on their own business
rather than their transportation needs.
>> Technology: Our investments in IT systems are very important and constant.
We use the best state-of-the-art software for our work, providing our clients with Information Technology (IT) tools in order to help
their transportation needs. Our superior IT capacity allows us to offer integrated solutions to
companies of all sizes.
>> Values: We believe in long term relationships.
The center of our business operations is honesty and trust.
AIRTRADES was incorporated in 1984. The three partners, Ian Bailey, Pierre Dagenais and James Hutchinson, together bring considerable years of experience from both the freight forwarding and airline perspective of the industry.
