We now have over 4,700 member freight forwarder offices in 187 countries around the world, and ensuring that each company receives the highest level of support to help them grow their business and expand into new markets is vital. I am sure that Reha’s skills and enthusiasm will prove an asset to the organization as we continue to add more benefits and value for each and every member company.”



WCA Family now employs over 90 staff across seven regional member service offices around the world and offers independent freight forwarding companies the most extensive portfolio of benefits and networking opportunities in the industry.
