Introduction

Specialization in the freight transport sector is a tendency that is consolidating itself. This is the reason why Cargo Club Forwarders (Spain) created the World Wine Cargo Alliance, the aim of which is to generate new business opportunities and establish relationships among different companies that are willing to transport wine and other spirits, even though members are also managing other types of commodities.

The concept of the network originated in the beginning of 2019, but it was not active until June 2019, when the first conference was held. The event took place in Barcelona and 21 companies assisted. Since then, the World Wine Cargo Alliance has grown and it is currently formed by 29 companies from all over the world, which cooperate and generate new traffics of wine and other commodities.

Memberships are limited. There is a maximum of two companies per country, except for the USA, Brazil, Russia, China, Argentina, Chile and Mexico, since they manage a larger amount of wine imports and exports.
