FED EX, DHL And UPS In Canada

Thu Sep 20, 2007 6:16 am

Do FED EX, UPS have the right to carry freight between two points within Canada? If so, then obvious cargo is governed by differeent rules than pax carriers?

FedEx contracts another airline (MorningStar Air Express) using sub-let FedEx jets to do Canadian point to point operations. Canada - US - Canada is handled normally.

Does this matter anymore?

As far as I know they have to use Canadian sub-contractor carriers for domestic service. FedEx can of course carry cargo between two Canadian cities via a hub in the US, but unless this has changed recently, they can't carry cargo on one of their US-registered aircraft on a direct flight between two points in Canada.

In addition to 5th freedom rights, the Canada-US bilateral gives carriers from both countries 7th freedom rights to operate stand-alone international services between the other country and a 3rd country. e.g. FedEx could base an aircraft in Canada and operate to a 3rd country without the flight having to originate/terminate in the USA. And vice versa for Canadian all-cargo carriers. But they don't have cabotage (domestic) rights.

I stand to be corrected in case any of the above has changed recently.

I'm not sure I get your point? I guess my answer would be yes, it does matter because it applied to the question being asked.

Viscount724: Great description on the legalities of the whole situation.
