The AWA Way

jetAll AWA successes—from our client relationships and forwarder partnerships to the daily creative solutions we deliver—are founded on trust and communication. These two indispensable values form the foundation of the AWA Way.


With more than three decades of experience in international logistics, the AWA team understands that trust must be earned. Our partners across the globe have stuck with us because we reinforce their trust by delivering results.

We take a skillful approach to every challenge, and our client-first mentality is reflected in our confidentiality, fairness, and unwavering commitment to reliable service.


Real-time, actionable information is as good as gold in freight forwarding. We constantly communicate with our customers and partners via every available technology, because our customers value our accessibility as much as our proactive approach to keeping them informed.

There are many ways to communicate these days, and AWA uses them all. From our office phones to our cell phones, from emails to text messages, and everywhere in between—we keep our customers abreast of their shipments’ progress so that they can confidently make informed business decisions.

Our business model has always focused on the long term. We believe that customer relationships don’t end with a successful shipment delivery. When you partner with AWA, you’ll see that we work every day to help our customers grow and strengthen.

The AWA Way is how we do business with our customers, partners, vendors, and team members. If you share our commitment to excellence, we would like the opportunity to earn your trust.
