By Alex Lennane 10/10/2016 The network will help forwarders understand what is required for e-commerce logistics through a knowledge hub, as well as developing end-to-end networks, helping with compliance and Customs, and enabling forwarders to deliver e-commerce packages both in the B2B and B2C sectors.WCA has also negotiated a low rate with UPS for domestic US deliveries for the final mile.“Some 40% of international e-commerce portals turn down orders due to poor cross-border logistics and fulfilment capabilities for last-mile delivery,” Mr March told delegates at FIATA’s World Congress in Dublin.“Companies like Alibaba are looking for logistics providers, which what is holding up their growth, not demand. Alibaba has ambitions to be as well-known as Amazon in Europe and the US, but needs logistics to do so.”Mr March added that new e-marketplaces were emerging too – and they also needed logistics solutions.“I think every forwarder should offer e-commerce as part of their core service,” he said.Challenges for forwarders entering the market include compliance, “red tape” and technology, he said. But with increasing amounts of off-the-shelf technology products, it is becoming easier.“The e-commerce network was set up to provide industry leadership and benefits for members,” Alex Allen, managing director of the new network told The Loadstar.“We were surprised when we started looking into it and seeing how many components of e-commerce logistics already sit in our networks, such as last mile and fulfilment or Customs brokerage services. A lot of these services are scaffolding that supports these processes.“We want to connect up existing specialty network capabilities and use them for e-commerce. You could, for example, find a forwarder somewhere remote, like Belarus, and it could be the last-mile delivery agent for that country. If we join the platform with cross-border networks and distribution networks it becomes possible to do door-to-door. We don’t have to go outside the network then for solutions.”The e-commerce network had a “soft” launch last month, but will fully come into existence in February. © Arne9001 The WCA forwarder group has launched a new network to help members join the e-commerce revolution.Last year, the e-commerce market was worth $50bn in the US, $44bn in China and $41bn in the EU – by 2020, the sector will be worth $2 trillion, with significant growth across all regions of the world.“E-commerce is the new economy,” said Dan March, chief executive of WCA. “All traders are putting their goods online.“The question is, how we can get a piece of the biggest sector of growth? It’s complex, it’s a new language, and we need to get onboard.”

The Rolls-Royce Boat Tail may be the most expensive new car ever ‹ Previous Next › COMMENTSSHARE YOUR THOUGHTS See More Videos There very few things in the automotive world which cost astronomical amounts and hardly serve any purpose; most of those are objects of art. It can be said that the this 1/4 scale replica of an engine – which is not functional – is an object art. Modeled after the Bugatti Chiron’s engine, it’s painstakingly accurate and crafted with such precision that at first you’d mistake it for the real deal. Made mostly of pewter and stainless steel, it measures 44 centimeteres long and 22 centimetres high. Priced at US$9,365 – about $12,000 Canadian – it took Amalgam Collections, the manufacturer, 2,500 man hours to develop the model and another 220 hours to build.The model has over 1,000 individual parts and was designed closely with Bugatti’s design team to recreate the mastery involved in producing this scale model of the original, 1,500-horsepower monster of an engine. Unlike a modern hypercar’s hybrid powertrain, the Chiron’s engine is all mechanical.

In fact, the door handles are one of items most commonly listed as faulty by Tesla Model S owners, according to Consumer Reports.The design of the door handles has been contentious since its inception. Elon Musk insisted on their inclusion despite the fact during development it “was unanimous among the executive staff that the complex door handle idea was crazy,” according to a former exec speaking with Wired.

MaxiVision Eye Hospitals launches “Mucormycosis Early Detection Centre” Indraprastha Apollo Hospitals releases first “Comprehensive Textbook of COVID-19” cardiac catheterisation labDr AB MehtaJaslok Hospital & Research CenterJitendra Haryan The missing informal workers in India’s vaccine story The cath lab will help to cater to the increasing number of patients with heart-related issues in the cityJaslok Hospital & Research Center has launched a state-of-the-art cardiac catheterisation lab. This is the second Cath Lab to be added in the hospital and will help to cater to the increasing number of patients with heart-related issues in the city. This facility will provide assistance in various heart-related procedures like angioplasty, angiography, rota ablation, intravascular ultrasound, TAVI and other structural heart diseases, pacemaker, amongst many other procedures. The facility will also help doctors as they will have a image-guided visualisation of the patient’s heart, automatically segmented according to the type of procedure recommended.The lab has Live Image Guidance (LIG) to perform the minimal invasive surgery with precision. Apart from LIG, the machine also has features such as intuitive user interface, physiology co-registration, seamless integration into the pci workflow, analysis and device detection to name a few. It will also provide deeper anatomical understanding to plan and perform TAVR/TAVI, mitral valve replacement and LAAC procedures. Immersive user experience and fully automated tasks simplify planning, measurement, device selection and choice of optimal X-ray viewing angle.Speaking at the launch, Jitendra Haryan, CEO, Jaslok Hospital said, “We have seen a steady increase in the number of cardiovascular cases that the hospital receives and thus adding another advanced cath lab will benefit us in treating more number of patients. There is a growing demand for image-guided therapy and increasingly complex procedures, so hospitals are looking for ways to treat more patients in less time without compromising quality of care. Our state-of-the-art cath lab will not only increase the number of procedures done at Jaslok, but doctors would also be able to perform more elective or planned procedures on patients.”Adding to this, Dr AB Mehta, Head of Cardiology, Jaslok Hospital said, “Cath Lab facility will directly benefit patient outcomes and experience, because it enables clinicians to provide superior care in the interventional lab and provides high productivity at a lower cost of procedure. The facility is specifically designed to provide both high performance for real-time multitasking and an outstanding user experience where interventional team members can work parallelly at flexible work spots without interrupting each other.”The launch also witnessed the felicitation of five BEST drivers who went beyond their call of duty to save lives of patrons in the city. BEST association conducts CPR trainings for the drivers and support staff as part of their community outreach initiative. These five drivers who had received CPR training could identify the commuter under stress as a case of heart attack, and immediately performed CPR on them.Dr Metha was also felicitated for his outstanding contribution in the field of cardiology and nearly half a century service at Jaslok Hospital.

Less Road Fatalities In 2011 TransportJanuary 5, 2012 FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail Jamaica recorded less road fatalities last year when compared to 2010, despite missing the targeted figure of below 300. Education and Information Officer in the Road Safety Unit in the Ministry of Transport and Works, Julian Thompson, said the official figures for 2011 have not yet been disclosed by the police, but based on preliminary data, the number of road deaths fell below the 319 deaths recorded in 2010. “We ended at about 304 fatalities for the year. We are coming from a high of 350 fatalities a few years ago; now we are very close to achieving that target (of below 300). We are trending in the right direction and we just hope that for this year we will achieve that target,” he said. Mr. Thompson said the country has started the year on a negative path, as “we have had over 10 road fatalities so far in only four days and that is a cause for concern.” He is reminding Jamaicans to use the nation’s roadways responsibly and join the Transport Ministry in its effort to achieve the target of below 300 road fatalities. The Road Safety Unit has been working to keep road fatalities under the 300 mark through its ‘Below 300 campaign’. The mission of the Road Safety Unit is to promote and foster an orderly and disciplined traffic culture that is conducive to the development of a safe traffic environment, through the conceptualisation, design and dissemination of a sustained programme of public information, education in schools, legislation, accident information and research.
