UK-based delivery tech firm DeliveryApp has appointed Phil Woodbridge as its operations director.
Woodbridge, who previously held a senior operations position at Parcel2Go, has industry experience in self-service technology, chatbots and AI functionality. In his new role, he will help develop the offering around technology for DeliveryApp’s clients and drivers.
With a focus on prioritizing ethical driver treatment in the delivery sector, DeliveryApp already has a network of over 16,000 drivers and plans to expand this throughout 2023 to keep up with growing demand from UK brands to offer same-day delivery services. The company offers real-time tracking technology as well as same-day and planned delivery services.
Woodbridge said, “What DeliveryApp is building is the future of the logistics space. Consumers are looking for a 21st-century solution to delivery and logistics tracking, and drivers and couriers are looking for fair and flexible work with companies that can create a community to make them feel a part of something bigger. After seeing the technology and community that DeliveryApp has created, I knew I wanted to be a part of the huge leap forward in the logistics space.”
Lance Jones, CEO of DeliveryApp, said, “Phil’s experience in operational agility is exactly what we were looking for to catapult DeliveryApp into our next stage of growth, with improving processes, introducing sustainability initiatives and reward schemes for our customers and drivers and ensuring that our industry-leading technology can continue to transform the market.”
