WCA and Alibaba have signed an agreement that integrates the WCA network into the retailer’s platform for cross-border deliveries.

“The fact that Alibaba.com has recognized the quality, global strength and professionalism of WCA and its members will open up vast new opportunities for business growth for independent freight forwarders,” said Dan March, WCA’s Chief Executive Officer. “Many of our member companies are already heavily involved in many facets of cross-border eCommerce logistics. The strict qualification process for our newly-formed WCA eCommerce network will provide reassurance that the services provided by our members can facilitate merchants on Alibaba.com to accelerate their global trading.”

The collaboration will commence in January 2017, facilitating shipments generated by Alibaba.com’s members to be made to the major export markets of the USA, India and the UK.

Steve Su, Director, Alibaba Logistics said: “We are thrilled to partner with WCA, a global network with well-connected global resources, to provide fast and convenient shipping options for our members. We are committed to offering premium services to global SMEs on our platform who are looking to scale up their business presence through cross-border trading. We are confident partnering with a leading global logistics alliance such as WCA will help us achieve that goal.”

“The world is rapidly changing,” added WCA Chairman, David Yokeum. “And we are working hard to ensure that our members are equipped and able to take advantage of the huge projected growth in global eCommerce shipments. Alibaba.com has shown both determination and innovation in forming this partnership and we fully expect the business to flourish. We are putting both independent forwarders and Alibaba.com traders at the vanguard of change in this exciting and dynamic market.”
