DHL has appointed Tay Yi Ning as the new Head of its Asia Pacific Innovation Centre in Singapore.


In her role, Tay plans to further advance the innovation centre's position to become a reference for futuristic logistics solutions and customer-centricity.


DHL said in the announcement that she also leads a team dedicated to driving innovation-focused customer engagements and fostering open and collaborative discussions among solutions providers and start-ups.


"As a key logistics partner to some of the biggest companies in the world, we have a responsibility to constantly innovate and improve our logistics solutions to best meet our customers' needs. Our innovation centres around the world are here to shape the future of logistics and support our customers to secure new opportunities," said Eric Vargas, head of innovation centers, Global and Europe


"Asia Pacific is a region that continues to surprise us in many ways as several markets have emerged as key players in the global innovation landscape. With Yi Ning's extensive experience pioneering business solutions within the logistics sector on a regional scale, I am confident her expertise will help further position DHL as the innovative leader in the region," he added.


A familiar face to DHL Global Forwarding and DHL Customer Solutions and Innovation (CSI), Tay started her career at DHL Group in 2008 in the technology business development team of DHL Global Forwarding.


In 2015, she moved to the DHL CSI team as regional customer director for the technology sector and supported highly strategic customers, where she remained until she assumed her latest role.


"These are exciting times as we see more companies interested in innovative solutions that could help perform tasks efficiently and effectively. Our aim at the DHL Asia Pacific Innovation Center is to generate new ideas using smart logistics solutions that meet our customers’ pain points and address today’s global challenges," she said.


Launched in 2015, the DHL Innovation Center in Singapore is the company's first in the Asia Pacific region.
