Neutral NVO alliance adds Argentine, India members

The WorldWide Alliance, a network of neutral non-vessel-operating common carriers, has added two new members: SSL Consolidation in Argentina and Teamglobal in India.

   The alliance, formed in 2007, allows its NVO members to maintain their individual brand identities and operations, but offers them the ability to expand in import and export trade lanes through their partnership with the other alliance members. The alliance now has exclusive representation in more than 30 countries.

   “The addition of these new members further confirms the WorldWide Alliance as a key force in the global market place,” said Fiona Govan, the alliance’s executive director, in a statement.

   “We see this as a vital step in the future growth of our company,” added Mariana Viana, director of SSL in Argentina.

   The WorldWide Alliance provides its members with connectivity and cargo visibility via its Web site,

   In addition to the two new members, the alliance includes Shipco Transport (Americas, Europe, and Asia); SSC Consolidation (Belgium and the Netherlands); Saco Shipping (Germany); CFR Freight (South Africa); Allink (Brazil); Combimar Agemar (Italy); Transglory (Spain, Portugal, Tunisia and Algeria); Multimodal (France); Panama Consolidation Services (Panama); Interteam (Mexico); Mahe (Colombia); Mesco (Egypt); SSL Consolidation (Turkey, Czech Republic, Hungary, Switzerland and Austria); and Scanway Shipping (Russia).
