02 / 05 / 2018
Freight forwarder network WCA has expanded its presence in China in response to growth of members in the country while it has also appointed a new member of its e-commerce team.
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.
Nissen will work alongside WCA’s eCommerce director, Alex Allen to ensure the network provides guidance to members interested, or working in, the cross-border supply chain.
Mirja has been working in cargo and logistics since 2001 and was a trade lane manager for Weiss Rohlig USA and DHL eCommerce.
“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.”
Added WCA chief executive Dan 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.”
