WCA LAUNCHES eCOMMERCE LOGISTICS NETWORK


MIAMI, FL.,Thursday, 24th November 2016 – WCA Ltd has launched the world’s first dedicated eCommerce logistics network in response to the changing global economy and a marked shift towards online consumerism. The network is open to all players in the cross-border eCommerce supply chain.

By 2020 it is projected that freight forwarding will be 20 per cent eCommerce driven,” said David Yokeum, Founder and Chairman of WCA. “Our decision to become involved in eCommerce is a direct result of these projections. Our utmost concern is that network members are supported, and provided with the tools and opportunities necessary for them to become leaders in eCommerce logistics.”

Launched in mid-October, the network has already seen over 100 logistics companies apply for membership and has attracted the interest of a wide range of companies within the supply chain. “The response has been phenomenal,” said Dan March, WCA Chief Executive Officer. “We have been approached by a number of the world’s largest internet retailers and online marketplaces, all wishing to employ the network to meet their ambitious international expansion plans for B2B, B2C, and C2C business.”

The WCA eCommerce network is open to all independent freight forwarders regardless of their knowledge or experience in the sector. Companies first join at the eMember level where valuable resources – such as webinars, training sessions and expert consulting – can be utilized to help them become proficient in eCommerce logistics. Once accomplished, eMembers may apply for certified eVendor status, allowing them to trade directly and build volumes and business with fellow eCommerce partners and eTailers.

“To become a certified eVendor a member must undergo a comprehensive eCommerce capabilities audit,” said Alex Allen, WCA eCommerce’s Managing Director. “As an eVendor, the company is free to offer logistics services back to the network. The beauty for eVendors is that they are also fully covered by WCA’s industry-leading financial protection program.”

WCA eCommerce is the world’s only neutral platform; promoting product development, new partnerships, and business growth in the eCommerce sector.

In 2017 WCA eCommerce plans to launch a range of additional benefits, including comprehensive eCommerce shipment insurance, a range of innovative eCommerce-specific IT solutions, preferred rates on global and domestic last-mile and courier deliveries, and regional eCommerce consolidation programs.

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.
