The network of independent freight forwarders also make funding contributions to Transaid

London, UK, Wednesday 5th February 2020 – WACO will support Transaid as the network’s charity of choice, by providing funding and logistics expertise to Transaid’s transport and development initiatives.

The WACO System’s global network of independent freight forwarders are in a unique position to help out with their understanding of regional supply chains and transport infrastructure.

 “There’s a lot of similarity between Transaid’s mission and what WACO members do, such as global road safety, last mile distribution, and access to healthcare in remote areas,” said Florence Bearman, Head of Fundraising, Transaid.

“I’m looking forward to joining WACO members at their Annual General Meeting (AGM) in April where we can meet and talk more about how WACO and Transaid can work together on new opportunities.”

WACO’s AGM takes place from 19-22 April, 2020 in Nice, France, where members join discussions on the latest trends in logistics and undertake bilateral business meetings for global growth and collaboration opportunities.

“Transaid do great work in the logistics industry, raising safety standards and providing training and access to healthcare for those who need it most,” said Richard Charles, Chief Executive Officer (CEO), WACO.

“WACO’s partnership with Transaid will raise the profile of social responsibility for our members by allowing them to get involved in activities that benefit their communities and the logistics industry at large.

“We are excited to begin getting actively involved in this worthwhile enterprise.”

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.
