Former Amazon supply chain exec joins Deliv

PALO ALTO, Calif. — Deliv, the same-day, low cost delivery service that partners directly with large retailers, has appointed former Amazon progressive supply chain executive Michael Hart to VP of logistics.

Deliv recruited Hart from Amazon where he played a major role within the last mile delivery group. He brings more than 15 years of progressive supply chain and logistics operation experience to Deliv, including operational and managerial roles at FedEx, Skyway Freight, APX Logistics and Newgistics, where he devised and facilitated roll outs of major e-commerce-based logistics programs.

Deliv's differentiated same-day delivery service partners directly with large multichannel retailers in the same way UPS and FedEx do by appearing as a same-day delivery button at checkout, alongside standard and expedited shipping options. 

"The Deliv crowd-sourced model not only disrupts the last mile market, it also has the potential to help businesses optimize their supply chain," said Hart. "The commoditization of same-day shipping enables unit inventory levels to be lowered, so retail store inventory can be reduced and selections increased. These changes translate to improved bottom line performance as well as improved customer experience."

"Michael Hart is an extremely important strategic hire for us. He's one of the world's leading experts in last mile logistics," said Daphne Carmeli, founder and CEO of Deliv. "We're thrilled to welcome him on board and look forward to his invaluable guidance as we disrupt the transportation industry and transform local e-commerce."
