PMC Transport acquires contract to transport Mirabel Airport to Haiti, as part of a donation of airport equipment by the Canadian government.
PMC Transport, air and ocean freight forwarders have acquired a contract to aid with the transport of materials, equipment and facilities from Montreal’s Mirabel terminal to Hugo-Chavez International Airport in Haiti. PMC Transport, which specializes in the transport of goods, containers and materials to all ports in Haiti, subsequently acquired the contract to transport donated materials to the final destination of Cap Haitien, Haiti.
The freight contract is a result of the efforts put forth by The International Airport of Montreal (ADM) in Mirabel, in partnership with the National Aviation Authority (AAN) in Haiti, and the Canadian Embassy in Port au Prince. In a coordinated effort, the decision was made to donate airport equipment from Mirabel Airport in Montreal to Hugo-Chavez Airport in Cap Haitien, Haiti.
Over 100 check-in counters, customs and immigration counters, mechanical and electronic scales, 2000 luggage carts, and 500 seats will be moved from the Mirabel terminal, and be shipped to Haiti with services rendered by PMC Transport. All of the equipment being transported is in almost new condition.
In Haiti, Hugo-Chavez International Airport in Cap Haitien is set to expand with the arrival of the inaugural flight of American Airlines from Miami to Cap Haitien. Consequently, the donated goods will play an important role in the airports expansion and improvements.
PMC Transport is responsible for the transport of the containers and goods from Montreal to Miami to the final port of call in Port-Au-Prince.
Additional Haitian airports may also receive materials from the old Mirabel Airport, which has been closed since 2004, according to James Chery, director of the ADM. PMC Transport is likely to provide shipping and freight services for these additional donations.
“We are proud to be playing our part in contributing to the improvement in Haiti’s airport system, which will hopefully help boost industry, the economy and tourism in the country” said PMC Transport Chairman and CEO, Kazem Samet.
Containers have been dispatched by PMC Transport from the Port of Montreal, on a number of vessels, with shipments scheduled to begin arriving in Port-Au-Prince, Haiti throughout the month of September.
