WOW Cargo Alliance?

Mon Jul 22, 2019 5:49 am

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WOW_Alliance
Does anybody know what this group is or was? Is the alliance still alive? I haven't found any news of disbanding in a google search, and the only news or articles I've found about the group at all are almost a decade and a half old. Any knowledge would be appreciated.

The article presents the information as if they're still operating. It doesn't seem that's the case but I can't find any information beyond that.

Only SQ Cargo and SAS Cargo operate in the WOW Alliance as of now. LH Cargo and JAL Cargo withdrew from the Alliance in i think 2010 or 2011.

The Alliance was founded to share free Capacity on Planes from the Alliance Partners, whether PAX or Cargo Planes and to make it easier for Customers to send Freight around the Globe with only one Agency handling it from Start to Finish. You could think of it as a Express Network for Freight, which was achieved by using available Last Minute free Space on Planes of the Alliance Airlines. I remember them standardizing alot of Procedures throughout the Network to achieve this to make it easier for Customers to choose the right and especially fastest Way of shipping goods across the Globe.
