WCA hires new eCommerce director and opens new China office

In response to growing membership and network demands

MIAMI, FLORIDA, USA, May 2 2018 – In response to expanding membership and growing network demands, 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.

“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.”

“This new service center will significantly increase our presence in the world’s most significant and exciting export market,” said Dan March, CEO of WCA. “As a network that is constantly adding additional benefits, we strive to provide ever more assistance to members within major logistics gateways. This move empowers not only our Chinese members, but their global partners as well.”

In response to quickly-changing logistics demands, WCA has also hired Mirja Nissen to work alongside WCA’s eCommerce director, Alex Allen. The two will work to ensure the network provides guidance to members interested, or working in, the cross-border supply chain.

“As the industry grows and adapts, so must we,” said 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.”

Mirja has been working in cargo and logistics since 2001 and was a trade lane manager for Weiss Rohlig USA and DHL eCommerce. Her impressive background as an eCommerce visionary, versed in all aspects of supply chain management, makes her the perfect addition to WCA’s team of eCommerce leaders.

“We are very excited about Mirja’s transport knowledge and program development skills,” said Alex Allen, Managing Director of WCA eCommerce. “She will be a valuable asset and we are excited to unleash her know-how as we continue to develop the network.”
