Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Wednesday, 28 September 2011

Etihad Crystal Cargo has signed a Memorandum of Understanding to act as a vendor within the WCA Family network.

WCA Family is one of the largest groupings of independent freight forwarders in the world, with close to 4,000 member offices in more than 640 cities and ports worldwide.

The agreement will allow WCA Family members to access Etihad Crystal Cargos global network of 84 destinations.

At a time when we are enhancing service from Asia to the Indian Subcontinent and into Africa, we are very excited about this MoU with WCA Family and expect to be able to deliver exceptional value and routings to their members, said Roy Kinnear, Senior Vice President Cargo at Etihad. In our industry the issue of credit can be an administrative and financial burden especially for the smaller independent forwarder. This agreement allows WCA Family members to leverage the strength of the Etihad relationship with WCA Family to provide an airway bill facility on behalf of its members. This means all WCA Family agents will now have access to Etihad Crystal Cargos full booking facility.

In simple terms, if you are already trading with Etihad, its business as usual. However if you need access to more choice for your airfreight, this unique initiative allows you to begin transactions with Etihad quickly, founded on the strength of the Etihad relationship with WCA Family. Etihads worldwide sales network stands ready to support WCA Familys needs with creative airfreight solutions, Mr. Kinnear added.
