Whistl a UK logistics specialist in e-fulfilment, mail and parcels has appointed Andy Underwood as its first Managing Director of Whistl Parcels.
Whistl Parcels will focus on large organisations and core strategic customers using its national network with its Parcelhub brand focusing on medium sized organisations and large SMEs with a more regionalised approach with onsite local collections and consolidated volumes.
Whistl Parcles is perhaps one of the best kept secrets of logistics – you’re probably familiar with them as the mail provider of credit card bills and the like, collecting the mail from senders and inserting it into the Royal Mail network for last mile delivery. Over the past years however, they have been rapidly growing their ecommerce fulfilment for parcels and they’re now firmly established as a parcel shipping operation and it’s no surprise to see them appoint an MD of Whistl Parcels.
Andy has been with Whistl for 16 years, rising from Senior Account Manager to Sales Director North during that time. Following Andy’s promotion Laura Sanjurgo has been promoted to Director of Sales North.
With the sustained growth in online shopping, we need to capitalise upon these growth opportunities with a dedicated approach to maximise the parcel growth potential and the appointment of Andy as Managing Director to drive this initiative will help achieve this.– Alistair Cochrane, CEO Whistl
The company has made significant investment in the business in recent years through acquisition and the opening of new efficient mail and parcel processing depots and fulfilment centres.
