WACO MEMBERS COMBINE TO DELIVER FIFA ARAB CUP LOGISTICS VICTORY


Supply chain constraints across six countries and two continents overcome through efficiencies delivered through The WACO System

London, UK, Thursday 13th January 2022Members of The WACO System (WACO), headed by Dimotrans Group, combined collective expertise and experience to ensure the successful delivery of 600 tonnes of tournament equipment in time for the recent FIFA Arab Cup event in Doha, Qatar.

The combined project required WACO members to organise 100 sea freight containers and 200 tonnes of airfreight formed of three charter flights for 100 tonnes and the rest moved by regular scheduled flights.

“It took representatives from Qatar, France, UK, Germany, Belgium, and The Netherlands to make this international sporting occasion a success,” said Eric Abballe, Events Manager, Dimotrans.

“A major challenge was to coordinate local operations and international transport from multiple countries to such a strict deadline, which was further complicated by ongoing capacity struggles across airlines and shipping lines.”

“As a member of WACO, we were able to call on our partners across the network to navigate the tight market conditions and ensure the diverse cargoes were transported safely, in full, and on time.”

The cargo consisted of items such as exhibition demonstration material, assorted furniture, display stands, and other construction items required for large-scale tournaments.

“This project highlights both the benefit of being a WACO member and the effectiveness of The WACO System combining local knowledge, multinational collaboration, and diverse expertise to deliver for a world-class event,” said Richard Charles, Chief Executive Officer, WACO.

WACO is an exclusive network of global freight management companies that have a combined annual turnover of USD four billion across 120 members in 116 countries, employing over 21,000 freight professionals who handle over 1.85 million shipments each year.

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.
