AGENCY SECTOR MANAGEMENT APPOINTS RAY BEEKS TO BOARD OF DIRECTORS


The Operations Manager of Concordia International Forwarding replaces Brian Drakeley who has retired

London, UK, Monday, 10th February 2020 – Agency Sector Management (ASM) has appointed Ray Beeks, Operations Manager of Concordia International Forwarding to its Board of Directors replacing Brian Drakeley who has retired.

Drakeley was fundamental in shaping ASM into the company that it is today with more than 20 years’ experience on the Board, he was one of ASM’s longest standing Directors.

“It’s a privilege to be part of the team and I am excited to be associated with ASM who have been respected throughout the industry for many years,” said Beeks.

“I am hoping to help play a part in ASM finding resolutions for the future challenges our industry faces.”

Beeks said he is particularly interested in the problems and solutions to the current issues of Customs Declaration Service (CDS) and Brexit.

“ASM is crucial to freight forwarders in these uncertain times and is seen as a vital supportive partner in the past, present and future.

“ASM can positively help the industry and supply chain by continuing to be at the forefront of software solutions, the organisation also provides links to government organisations and new rules and regulations that would be missed greatly if it was not available.”

In his role at Concordia, he oversees the day-to-day running of the London operation and External Transit Shed Facility (ETSF) along with continual improvement to the global freight forwarder’s product and staff knowledge.

“We are delighted to welcome Ray as a Director and look forward to having his knowledge and expertise on the ASM team,” said Peter MacSwiney, ASM Chairman.

“A big thank you to Brian for all his work and insight as a director at ASM and we wish him a happy retirement.”

Concordia uses ASM’s Sequoia Customs clearance platform.

“The user-friendly system has been of great benefit for many years and has saved the company many hours of manpower over the years,” said Beeks.

Our Vision

The objective of SESAR is to modernise European ATM by defining, developing and delivering new or improved technologies and procedures (SESAR Solutions).

SESAR’s vision builds on the notion of trajectory-based operations’ and relies on the provision of air navigation services (ANS) in support of the execution of the business or mission trajectory — meaning that aircraft can fly their preferred trajectories without being constrained by airspace configurations.

SESAR Deployment Manager

The SESAR Deployment Manager (SDM) function is defined by the Article 9 of Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) N°409/2013. Under the oversight of the European Commission, the SDM function consists of the synchronisation and the coordination of the deployment of the Common Projects. A Common Project is a Commission Implementing Regulation which mandates the implementation of the most essential operational changes in the European ATM Master Plan by the Member States of the European Union and their operational stakeholders. The first Common Project is known as the Pilot Common Project (PCP) and is defined by the Regulation (EU) N°716/2014. The SDM synchronises and coordinates implementation against the SESAR Deployment Programme which is a project view of the Common Projects organizing their implementation into optimum sequences of activities by all the stakeholders required to implement. To develop and maintain the SESAR Deployment Programme in close consultation with all the stakeholders is another important task under the SDM function.
