SingPost appoints Sam Ang as CEO of Quantium Solutions
Singapore Post (SingPost) has appointed Sam Ang, Group CEO Famous Holdings and Executive Vice President, SingPost, as CEO of Quantium Solutions. In his new role, Ang will lead both SingPost’s eCommerce logistics arm, and freight forwarding operations as well as oversee SP Parcels. This is in line with the company’s integrated delivery strategy.
He will report to Mervyn Lim, covering Group Chief Executive Officer, until a new Group Chief Executive Officer is appointed.
Mervyn Lim said: “SingPost remains committed to developing and strengthening the company’s end-to-end eCommerce logistics business and capabilities. Sam brings with him 35 years of experience in the logistics sector that will help pave the way for SingPost to drive synergies and efficiencies between two of our important businesses – eCommerce logistics and freight forwarding, as we build out our integrated network.
Lim added: “Sam’s appointment to Quantium Solutions will bolster SingPost’s efforts to build an eCommerce logistics ecosystem that enables end-to-end solutions covering four critical levers namely, transportation, warehousing and fulfilment, last mile delivery and returns, and front-end support.”
SingPost will officially launch its S$182 million Regional eCommerce Logistics Hub later this year to create capacity for further growth in eCommerce logistics. The new hub will improve SingPost’s speed to market as it brings its eCommerce logistics capabilities, comprising Quantium Solutions, SP Parcels, Famous Holdings and SP Commerce, all under one roof.
Ang is a veteran in shipping, ocean freight forwarding, air freight forwarding and logistics management, with 35 years of experience. He joined SingPost a year ago from DHL, where he was CEO of DHL Global Forwarding for South East Asia.
