WCA hires new eCommerce director and opens new China office


In response to growing membership and network demands

MIAMI, FLORIDA, USA, May 2 2018 – In response to expanding membership and growing network demands, WCA has opened a new member support office in Shenzhen, China, as well as hiring former DHL eCommerce international trade lane manager Mirja Nissen as co-director of its eCommerce network.

“Our China-based membership is growing exponentially,” said Damin Wang, Vice President of WCA China. “And the number of members in Asia-Pacific require even more attention. Opening this secondary China office will help us manage agent requests and will align us to better support our growing membership in the area.”

“This new service center will significantly increase our presence in the world’s most significant and exciting export market,” said Dan March, CEO of WCA. “As a network that is constantly adding additional benefits, we strive to provide ever more assistance to members within major logistics gateways. This move empowers not only our Chinese members, but their global partners as well.”

In response to quickly-changing logistics demands, WCA has also hired Mirja Nissen to work alongside WCA’s eCommerce director, Alex Allen. The two will work to ensure the network provides guidance to members interested, or working in, the cross-border supply chain.

“As the industry grows and adapts, so must we,” said March. “Bringing Mirja onboard is a strategic move to keep us ahead of the curve in this rapidly expanding and increasingly vital sector of our industry. We want to provide the right tools for those working in eCommerce logistics and we believe Mirja will be able to help us do just that.”

Mirja has been working in cargo and logistics since 2001 and was a trade lane manager for Weiss Rohlig USA and DHL eCommerce. Her impressive background as an eCommerce visionary, versed in all aspects of supply chain management, makes her the perfect addition to WCA’s team of eCommerce leaders.

“We are very excited about Mirja’s transport knowledge and program development skills,” said Alex Allen, Managing Director of WCA eCommerce. “She will be a valuable asset and we are excited to unleash her know-how as we continue to develop the network.”

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.
