WCA unveils new membership centres to enhance network relations
October 4, 2017: WCA, the world’s largest and most powerful network of international logistics companies, recently opened additional membership service centers to further enhance its network relations.
WCA’s new offices in Dubai, New Delhi and the Ivory Coast are operational since September 22. Plans call for a new facility in Shenzhen to open in early 2018. The new service centers join already-established regional WCA facilities in Bangkok, Miami, Mumbai, Shanghai, Istanbul, London, and Amsterdam.
“These new offices help round out WCA’s global reach and allow us to best service the complex needs of our members while promoting their global businesses in an increasingly competitive market,” commented David Yokeum, WCA’s founder and chairman. “Every WCA regional office is directed by highly professional staff with many years’ experience in the cargo transportation industry.”
Growth in personnel and facilities mirrors WCA’s trend of member investment; offering innovative solutions to the SME freight forwarding community. WCA has also acquired a stake in FreightSnap, a successful freight-dimensioning company, as well as developed an international LCL online marketplace called Consol2xChange.
“WCA is also heavily focussed on developing innovative products, solutions and partnerships within the rapidly growing cross-border e-commerce sector,” said Mark Mairowitz, executive vice president of WCA. “With the launch of the world’s first e-commerce logistics network back in 2016, membership has grown rapidly. Our expansion efforts are partially in response to nearly 500 member-agent locations, worldwide.”
Alongside the opening of new offices in Dubai, New Delhi and the Ivory Coast, WCA also broadened its North American presence by expanding its regional office in South Florida (Sunrise, FL, 30 minutes north of Miami International Airport). Recent management additions have permitted WCA to accelerate the development of its new tools and solutions; tools designed to elevate independent and regional freight forwarders and to help them gain a competitive edge against multinational logistics providers.
