Jayne James joins Yodel to lead its international expansion
UK independent parcel carrier, Yodel, has appointed Jayne James as director of international services. Her appointment follows the opening of Yodel’s first international office, in Chengdu, China, last year to support inbound services.
Jayne brings a wealth of global logistics expertise to the business, having worked in the international mail, express parcels and supply chain solutions industry for more than 25 years. She joins Yodel from Deutsche Post DHL Group, where she focussed on cross border ecommerce growth to Europe and America and has also led projects offering e-commerce solutions to Chinese consolidators.
