Canopy Growth Corporation (TSX: WEED) has further secured their marijuana transportation by signing an exclusive agreement with INKAS® Security Services Ltd., an armored messenger and armored courier services company.
The exclusive agreement was announced January 18, 2018 and will see INKAS® provide transportation services for medical marijuana across all Canopy Growth locations and subsidiaries.
The press announcement states that INKAS® will introduce a new innovative line of 100%-custom secure transport vehicles in order to accommodate the transportation of marijuana in a completely protected and climate controlled environment maintaining necessary temperature and humidity levels.
“We’re ready to harness our unique ability to manufacture the best custom-built armored vehicles, and provide Canopy Growth Corporation with a form-fitted solution that’s truly one of a kind. This is just another example of INKAS®’s innovative thinking and nimble approach which ensures that customers’ needs are met to a tee.” – Victor Goodman, President and CEO, INKAS® Security Services Ltd
Working within Health Canada transportation regulations, INKAS® and Canopy Growth were able to work hand-in-hand creating a standard operating procedure that complies with and satisfies strict governmental policies in order to provide secured transportation while meeting required product storage specifications. With recent news of approval for up to 150 marijuana-dispensing LCBO locations to commence in July 2018, INKAS® has taken the opportunity to understand what will be required during this expansion process and intends to provide a one stop service for all vendors who require secure transportation services that are discreet, professional, and custom-tailored to the needs of the medical marijuana industry.
