Iyad Kamal, former Aramex COO, has come on board as part of its advisory team.

Kamal has over 29 years of leadership experience with Aramex, a global provider of transportation, logistics, e-commerce, data and analytics, and sustainability solutions.

His expertise includes driving organic growth, organisation design and leadership, and creating asset-light, tech-driven, end-to-end operations infrastructure.

Kamal currently serves on the board of Tradeling; a growth-stage e-marketplace focused on building the largest digital network of B2B sellers and buyers in the MENA Region.

He also advises GeoPost/DPD Group, a rapidly growing 50-country logistics network that delivers more than 2 billion parcels per year.

Kamal will play a crucial role in enabling Shipsy to continue its growth in the Middle East and Southeast Asian markets and accelerate expansion in Europe and the US. He will also advise the company to drive rapid logistics innovation by further strengthening its AI, ML and Blockchain capabilities.

"I'm glad to join Shipsy in its mission to transform the global logistics industry and deliver greater value for all stakeholders," Kamal says.

"We see growing demand for Shipsy's game-changing logistics management products and services across multiple geographies," Shipsy co-founder and CEO Soham Chokshi says.

"Therefore, having advisors with in-depth industry knowledge is critical to our growth. We are fortunate to have Iyad Kamal, an industry leader, on our Advisory Board."
