UK and European parcel locker company InPost has appointed a new management team to further drive growth and lead environmentally positive change in the way customers have their goods delivered in the UK.
As well as the UK, Advent International-owned InPost has grown fast in Poland, quadrupling its presence from 2,000 parcel lockers to 8,000 in the last two years.
The new Inpost CEO is to be Jason Taveria who comes in from eBay owned Shutl. Chief Commercial Officer is to be Lotta Lindquist-Brosio who has also come from eBay. Also from the online marketplace, Prasanth Subramanian comes in as Technology Director. Locations Director Gavin Brice comes in from Global Exterion Media and CBS Outdoor.
InPost UK has already partnered with carriers such as Hermes, DHL Express and DX and retailers such as Boohoo, JD Group and Holland and Barrett.
Jason Tavaria, CEO of Inpost, said: “We want to help change online shopping behaviour to create greener communities and we believe we can achieve this by integrating into how people work, shop and play. We have a growing network across the country with 24/7 availability and are continuing to identify suitable sites within large urban areas including transport hubs, universities and hospitals.
“The UK’s delivery infrastructure is at breaking point and won’t cope as demand for faster, convenient deliveries continues to soar. Delivery lockers are not only convenient for consumers, but also simplify assorted logistical problems including environmental and safety issues.
“I’m confident that the new management team can deliver the next phase of growth for InPost in the UK and our specific expertise will help unlock new opportunities. We’ve had positive discussions with organisations and government over the past few weeks that show there is real demand for innovation to help unblock the delivery and returns logjam and we believe we have an integral role to play in that process.”
