UK 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. James brings a wealth of global logistics expertise to the business, having worked in the international mail, express parcels and supply chain industries for more than 25 years. 

She joins Yodel from DHL Group where she focused on cross border e-commerce growth to Europe and America. She has also led projects offering e-commerce solutions to Chinese consolidators.

James said: “I am delighted to be joining Yodel to build on the excellent work being developed by the team. It’s an exciting time for the business and I look forward to expanding our offering to support our retail partners’ international ambitions.”

James will report to Yodel’s chief commercial officer Sam Holden and will work alongside their director of international business development Duncan Lee.

Holden commented: “As e-commerce becomes increasingly global, retailers need logistics partners that can deliver outstanding experiences to customers around the world. 

"Jayne has a proven track record in global logistics and she and Duncan are ideally placed to develop and deliver our global plans and support Yodel’s growth in this area.”
