Allied Space Ways
Allied Space Ways is not exactly a corporation itself. Rather it is an “overlord” or trust organization made up of various interstellar shipping companies from within and outside of the Alliance.
The board of ASW is composed of no less than twenty representatives from some of the galaxy’s largest shipping firms. The company’s mandate is to facilitate standards of transportation across known space while promoting the ecconomic health and the security and stability of space born commerce and transportation.
They have a very influential lobby in both the Alliance and the Confederation.
One does not have to be a member of ASW to conduct shipping and transportation of course, but having this powerful organization behind you can certainly be helpful. Provided of course that you’re willing to pay your dues and uphold the company lines.
