Geodis moves deeper into e-commerce fulfillment
Nothing says commitment like the birth of a new department. At Geodis, the creation of a new title – global head of e-commerce solutions – suggested that the French logistics firm is hoping to jump on the e-commerce bandwagon and expand its fulfillment network across Europe.
At the end of November, Geodis promoted Ashwani Nath, its global market line director for retail for the previous three years, to head the new e-commerce department. Before joining Geodis, Nath worked for an eight-year stint at DHL Global Forwarding.
Today, he reports to Philippe de Carné, the company’s group chief commercial officer, and is responsible for building “end-to-end e-commerce and omni-channel solutions” at Geodis. Under Nath’s leadership, Geodis said the plan is to develop “e-fulfillment infrastructure in warehouses, order management systems for cross-border last-mile and customer service for end-to-end visibility.”
“Ash’s deep experience and knowledge of the logistics market make him the real expert to optimize our customers’ supply chains,” de Carné added.5 - Readers Like This Post
