IAG Cargo has entered into a global strategic partnership with freight management network The WACO System.

Under the agreement, WACO's members have been nominated as preferred forwarders by IAG Cargo, the merged freight business of British Airways and Iberia, whilst IAG Cargo becomes part of WACO’s preferred carrier programme.

“We are delighted to strengthen our relationship with the WACO organisation and recognise the mutual benefit the partnership has for its members,” said Dave Shepherd, Head of Commercial at IAG Cargo.

This deal makes The WACO System, which celebrates its 40th anniversary this year, part of the IAG Cargo LIFT reward and recognition program as well as increasing commercial activities between the two organisations through dedicated global account management.

“IAG Cargo complements our existing global preferred carrier programme and will bring even more choice to our members, especially in our key markets of Europe, Asia, North and Latin America,” said Richard Charles, Executive Director, The WACO System.

The WACO System, which recently boosted its membership in Africa as part of an ongoing expansion programme, is looking to grow its Latin American footprint in the New Year.
