WACO becomes Transaid’s 37th Corporate Member
We are delighted to welcome WACO as our newest corporate members. WACO will support Transaid as the network’s charity of choice, by providing funding and logistics expertise to our transport and development initiatives.
Founded in 1973, The WACO System is an exclusive network consisting of a number of independent freight management companies. These companies are therefore in a unique position to help out with their understanding of regional supply chains and transport infrastructure.
Transaid’s Head of Fundraising, Florence Bearman, said these shared areas of interest were a strong foundation for the partnership: “There’s a lot of similarity between Transaid’s mission and what WACO members do, such as global road safety, last mile distribution, and access to healthcare in remote areas,”
“I’m looking forward to joining WACO members at their Annual General Meeting (AGM) in April where we can meet and talk more about how WACO and Transaid can work together on new opportunities.”
WACO’s AGM takes place from 19-22 April, 2020 in Nice, France, where members join discussions on the latest trends in logistics and undertake bilateral business meetings for global growth and collaboration opportunities.
Meanwhile, said Richard Charles, WACO’s Chief Executive Officer, said: “Transaid do great work in the logistics industry, raising safety standards and providing training and access to healthcare for those who need it most,”
“WACO’s partnership with Transaid will raise the profile of social responsibility for our members by allowing them to get involved in activities that benefit their communities and the logistics industry at large.We are excited to begin getting actively involved in this worthwhile enterprise.”
WACO will join a group of 36 other corporate members committed to making a difference by supporting Transaid’s work. Learn more about our corporate membership scheme here.
