WCA has appointed Mirja Nissen as co-director of its e-commerce network and opened a member support office in Shenzhen to meet growing network demands.
“Our China-based membership is growing exponentially,” said Damin Wang, vice president of WCA China. “And the number of members in Asia Pacific requires 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.”
Dan March, CEO of WCA, said that the new service centre will significantly increase WCA’s presence in the world’s most significant and exciting export market.
“As a network that is constantly adding additional benefits, we strive to provide ever more assistance to members within major logistics gateways,” said March. “This move empowers not only our Chinese members, but their global partners as well.”
Mirja Nissen will work alongside Alex Allen, managing director of WCA eCommerce. The two will work to ensure the network provides guidance to members interested in or working in the cross-border supply chain.
“As the industry grows and adapts, so must we,” March said. “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 e-commerce logistics and we believe Mirja will be able to help us do just that.”
Nissen has been working in cargo and logistics since 2001. She was previously a trade lane manager for Weiss Rohlig USA and DHL eCommerce.
“We are very excited about Mirja’s transport knowledge and program development skills,” said Allen. “She will be a valuable asset and we are excited to unleash her know-how as we continue to develop the network.”
