WCA’s General Networks

WCA comprises four distinctive and individual general networks; each with its own dedicated membership and focus.

Each of these networks individually eclipse many of the world’s multinational freight forwarders in both volumes and revenues.

Combined, these four networks with 7166 member offices around the world form the most powerful logistics organisation in the world.
Every member company of each of the networks has successfully passed the rigorous and scrupulous vetting/qualification procedure that ensures WCA that members are the most professional and respected companies in the industry.
WCA First (formerly World Cargo Alliance) was the world’s first non-exclusive logistics network and rapidly rose to become the most powerful and most recognised single network of independent logistics operators in the industry.
