New CEO for CouriersPlease to consolidate eCommerce service
Parcel service franchise CouriersPlease has a new chief executive. Mark McGinley took up the role on 1 April 2016.
McGinley said “I am excited about the prospect of leading CouriersPlease on its next stage of growth as the company focuses on consolidating its position as an eCommerce leader.
"As CEO, I want to continue to foster a spirit of continuing innovation. We will build on the recent launch of our new international products, domestic air express and same-day metro services.”
The specialised metropolitan parcel delivery company was founded in 1983 and has a reputation for metro and domestic express services.
“We have now further evolved our services to enable us to capitalise on the rapidly growing eCommerce market,” said McGinley, who joined CouriersPlease in 2003.
His roles include national sales and marketing manager and most recently, national commercial manager.
CouriersPlease is a fully owned subsidiary of Singapore Post and is part of an end-to-end, global eCommerce logistics ecosystem that is emerging to serve the growing eCommerce, retail and logistics business in Australia.
In June 2015, Singapore Post invested in Hubbed, a one-stop eCommerce aggregator that has built a network of over 600 newsagents to provide a parcel delivery service in every major city across Australia.
McGinley said “With support of our parent company, Singapore Post, we are well positioned to take advantage of the growing eCommerce logistics space. We have already launched 10 smart lockers called POPStations in this market and plan to roll out another 50 in the coming year.
"These products, along with our newsagent network partner Hubbed, mean online shoppers can choose between direct door-to-door delivery or pick up from a network of over 600 newsagents and 60POPStations.”
CouriersPlease continues to expand its regional footprint and recently began operating in Darwin, Coffs Harbour, Perth, Albury and Cairns.
