The WACO System was established after our founding members recognised the need for a global network of independent freight forwarders who would compete against the growing number of American freight forwarders entering the European market.

Our Corporate Head Office is in Zürich, Switzerland and our Operations in London, UK.

We are an association, which means that we are owned by, and run for the benefit of our members.
