Why use WCA First

All forwarder members of WCA First must meet the group’s exacting standards of experience, professionalism and financial strength – satisfying the strict criteria set by WCA for quality of service and reliability. Membership is constantly monitored to ensure these standards are maintained – every time.

For complete peace of mind, every transaction between WCA First member companies is financially protected up to a limit of US$100,000. WCA First simply delivers to you the world’s finest independent freight forwarder and as a shipper or exporter you can benefit from:

Professional agents
To become a WCA First member, a freight forwarder must demonstrate its quality, experience and financial strength. Less than one-third of all applications are accepted.

Worldwide coverage
Any network can claim ‘global coverage’ but how many can deliver? WCA First is backed by the power of WCA, with more than 1524 member offices in 177-plus countries and more than 541 cities and ports.

Comprehensive insurance
WCA First members have exclusive access to a suite of industry-leading insurance products including Marine (cargo) coverage at special low rates as well as total E&O/Legal Liability coverage.

International teamwork
Meeting regularly with their fellow agents around the world at WCA First’s networking events allows members to personally discuss their clients’ needs and develop the most innovative and cost-effective solutions. Members develop a business relationship and understanding of their clients’ requirements that multinational companies are unable to offer.

Peace of mind
Transactions between any two WCA World member offices are covered by a financial guarantee up to a total US$100,00, underwritten by the proven financial power of WCA.

Full service
WCA First members have the power to provide all the services a shipper needs, handling your shipments with the greatest diligence and care, with the added bonus of local expertise to take care of any unusual requirements.

Technology
Members use a full suite of power tools provided by WCA First including online track and trace and rate quotation systems.

Value for money
With their superior local knowledge, WCA First members can obtain highly competitive rates for your cargo. In addition, the huge group buying power of WCA enables members to offer the best prices available in any market.

Accreditation
Every WCA First network member benefits from the All World Shipping group NVOCC – a fully compliant Bill of Lading which is legal for use in the US and China.
