Swiss WorldCargo and WCA link up
20 / 03 / 2015
Swiss WorldCargo has entered into a partnership agreement with WCA, the freight forwarding network for independent logistics providers.
Under a Memorandum of Understanding, the air cargo division of Swiss International Air Lines will undertake "cross-cooperation projects" with three of WCA’s specialty groups – WCA Pharma, WCA Time Critical and WCA Dangerous Goods.
The two organisations will exchange product and operational information to drive growth and cost-efficiencies across the three sectors.
Swiss International Air Lines’ chief cargo officer, Oliver Evans, said that the logistics market is complex and customers "need a range of solutions to support and develop their supply chain”.
WCA president David Yokeum said that an increasing number of airlines recognised the growing importance of the independent logistics sector to the health of the industry.
“By working closely with Swiss, which itself has established such a strong global reputation as a leader in these sectors, we can help bring even greater value to the ultimate users – the shippers and consignees.”
