As a member of the International Air Transport Association’s (IATA) cargo agency program, we are recognized as an industry leader in freight forwarding. The International Air Transport Association (IATA) represents most of the world's airlines and provides our Air Freight Forwarding division the ability to arrange for the immediate dispatch of urgent air freight deliveries.
We understand that air freight shipments are more expensive than ocean transport, and that on-time delivery is crucial. Our relationships with major airlines allow us to place your goods on cargo aircrafts as well as passenger flights. We also negotiate costs with several carriers to find the most efficient route with the least handling from origin dock to your door. Unlike many freight forwarders, we do not need to hub your cargo at our gateways until there's enough cargo to get a lower rate. We know the airlines, vendors and variables well, so you can be sure you're getting the most competitive market price for the safe arrival of your cargo and that the savings we get from our partner airlines are passed directly on to you.
You also get peace of mind with Western Overseas Corporation looking out for your shipment every step of the way.

As your U.S. Principal Party in Interest (USPPI), we complete the domestic regulatory requirements and get clearance from the U.S. Department of Commerce. We coordinate with you on packing to ensure safe transit. If your cargo is perishable, we help you meet ice requirements or get insulated containers, and if you're exporting dangerous cargo, we help you meet International Air Transport Association (IATA) regulations.
