SMITHS FALLS, ON, Nov. 8, 2018 /CNW/ – Canopy Growth Corporation (“Canopy Growth” or the “Company”) (TSX: WEED) (NYSE: CGC) today announced that it has entered into a multi-year agreement with The Brink’s Company (NYSE: BCO) through its Brink’s Canada subsidiary to provide secure logistics and cash management services for Canopy Growth’s domestic and international cannabis operations.
The Brink’s Company is the global leader in total cash management, secure route-based logistics and payment solutions and its global infrastructure will allow Canopy Growth to scale efficiently as its logistics needs become increasingly complex.
“Brinks’ reputation as a trusted industry leader has been earned by providing reliable secure transport services for over 90 years in Canada,” said Mark Zekulin, President and Co-CEO, Canopy Growth. “As a cannabis producer with growing national and international needs, we are proud to enter into this agreement and look forward to working with Brink’s to consistently deliver a variety of high-quality cannabis products to our retail locations and affiliates across the country.”
“The cannabis industry requires at-scale security solutions in order to continue on a trend of global growth, and Brink’s is uniquely positioned to provide these solutions,” said Doug Pertz, Brink’s President and CEO. “Our partnership with Canopy Growth, the leading producer and exporter of cannabis, diversifies our customer base and leverages BGS’ global network of secure logistics operations. We look forward to building a strong relationship with Canopy Growth as it grows throughout Canada and continues to enter new international markets.”
In addition to providing secure logistics and cash management services, Canopy Growth and Brink’s will develop a cross-selling program that enables Brink’s to provide services to Canopy Growth’s affiliated growers and retail customers. Canopy Growth’s international transportation and security needs will be provided by Brink’s Global Services (“BGS”), a Brink’s subsidiary that provides secure logistics for international shipments of high-value commodities.
