Vancouver International Airport’s (YVR) Pacific Rim location on the Great Circle Routes combined with a bustling seaport, established rail and truck routes to key North American cities put Vancouver on the transportation and logistics map. We are an international gateway for air cargo, linking to 39 international and 23 U.S. scheduled non-stop destinations.
Well positioned to facilitate movement of goods between Asia, Canada and the broader North American marketplace, Vancouver Airport Authority has taken an active role in the development and growth of air cargo and the Asia Pacific Gateway.
Our airport’s easy and immediate access to North America’s highway systems, with half of its catchment area in the U.S., and dedicated truck crossing of the American Border less than 30 minutes away and its proximity to Vancouver Harbour, makes sea-to-air and air-to-ground cargo transfers quick, efficient and economical.
YVR's Cargo Village is the airport’s air cargo headquarters and is home to air carriers, freight forwarders, customs brokers, trucking and courier companies, which occupy more than a million square feet of cargo buildings and warehouse space.
Vancouver International Airport is North America's best choice for logistics and supply chain management, with easy reach to global markets. We’re a strategic location as the closest major port between Asia and the Americas.
