WCA Appoints Matthew West to Managing Director of Elite Global Logistics Network


Miami, Florida, Thursday, August 2, 2018 – Elite Global Logistics Network (EGLN) merged with WCA in October of 2017, giving its members access to WCA’s top-tier member benefits and providing WCA members with even more global partnering options. As a result, WCA has appointed Matthew West, WCA director of North America, as EGLN’s managing director.

“Appointing Matthew to managing director was a no-brainer,” said Roy Stapleton, President and founder of EGLN – who celebrated 50 years in the logistics industry this past 1st July. “His longstanding experience as a WCA network leader is exactly what we need to expand the group and integrate into WCA’s existing model.”

Matthew West is an experienced director with more than six years of global logistics experience through leadership at WCA, the world’s largest and most powerful grouping of independent freight forwards.

“What makes Matthew so valuable is his diversity of skills,” said Roy. “He has sales experience, is great with the members and knows his way around WCA’s robust database.”

Matthew will work closely with Roy to provide un-matched member support to EGLN, WCA’s newest affiliate network. Together they will work to grow the network while expanding the logistics might of the entire WCA group.

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.
