After reading the A330 entry on wikipedia it mentioned that the cargo capacity is so good that some airlines fly overnight cargo flights
I know wikipedia isnt the best source but does anyone know of any A330 operators that do this?

Cathay used to fly A330s and 777-300s on overnight freight-only flights on behalf of DHL from Hong Kong. Many of them flew with no passengers of crew and all of them departed from the freight apron (which made it interesting for the new which did carry pax).

Since then, DHL and Cathay jointly bought Air Hong Kong which now flies a fleet of A300GFs around the region. However when one of the A300s goes for maintenance an A330 or 773 is called out from the passenger fleet to substitute. Despite the ungodly time of day, those flights are always quite fun.

Until recently, Philippine Airlines flew the MNL-HKG flight on behalf of DHL/AHK with an A330, although recently this was replaced with a 727F.
