Court File 50389CP Ontario Court of Justice & Related Cases


Plaintiffs allege that Defendants conspired to fix, raise, maintain, or stabilize prices of Airfreight Shipping Services by, among other things, coordinating surcharges (such as fuel and security surcharges) and by agreeing to eliminate or prevent discounting of surcharges. They claim that purchasers paid more for Airfreight Shipping Services than they otherwise would have paid.


All persons or entities (but excluding Defendants, their parents, predecessors, successors, subsidiaries, affiliates, as well as government entities) who purchased air cargo shipping services from any air cargo carrier for shipments within, to, or from Canada (except shipments to or from Canada and the United States) during the period from January 1, 2000 to September 11, 2006, including those persons who purchased air cargo shipping services through freight forwarders. Airfreight Shipping Services are defined as paid private air transport of freight or other cargo by an airline acting as a provider of such services.
