WCA and Alibaba.com Collaborate on Cross-border eCommerce Shipments


Shanghai, China, 12 January 2017  – WCA Ltd, the world’s largest logistics network, and Alibaba.com, a leading global wholesale trading platform and the B2B business arm of Alibaba Group, today announced they have concluded a co-operation agreement that will see approved WCA member companies integrated into the Alibaba.com logistics platform for cross-border eCommerce shipments.

WCA will provide its professional support in vetting and approving international logistics providers for high quality and efficient logistics services for the customers of Alibaba.com. Approved providers will have full access to compete for logistics orders generated on the Alibaba.com platform.

WCA and Alibaba.com have agreed parameters and standards of service, as well as offering all participants a protection scheme that includes compensation for qualifying transactions.

“The fact that Alibaba.com has recognised the quality, global strength and professionalism of WCA and its members will open up vast new opportunities for business growth for independent freight forwarders”, said Dan March, WCA’s Chief Executive Officer. “Many of our member companies are already heavily involved in many facets of cross-border eCommerce logistics. The strict qualification process for our newly-formed WCA eCommerce network will provide reassurance that the services provided by our members can facilitate merchants on Alibaba.com to accelerate their global trading.”

The collaboration will commence in January 2017, facilitating shipments generated by Alibaba.com’s members to be made to the major export markets of the USA, India and the UK.

Steve Su, Director, Alibaba Logistics said: “We are thrilled to partner with WCA, a global network with well-connected global resources, to provide fast and convenient shipping options for our members.  We are committed to offering premium services to global SMEs on our platform who are looking to scale up their business presence through cross-border trading. We are confident partnering with a leading global logistics alliance such as WCA will help us achieve that goal.”

“The world is rapidly changing,” added WCA Chairman, David Yokeum. “And we are working hard to ensure that our members are equipped and able to take advantage of the huge projected growth in global eCommerce shipments. Alibaba.com has shown both determination and innovation in forming this partnership and we fully expect the business to flourish. We are putting both independent forwarders and Alibaba.com traders at the vanguard of change in this exciting and dynamic market.”

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.
