Singapore Post (SingPost) has appointed Sam Ang, Group CEO Famous Holdings and Executive Vice President, SingPost, as CEO of Quantium Solutions, effective July 15, 2016.
Ang will lead both SingPost’s e-commerce logistics arm, and freight forwarding operations as well as oversee SP Parcels in line with the company’s integrated delivery strategy. Until a new Group Chief Executive Officer is appointed, Ang will report to Mervyn Lim, covering Group Chief Executive Officer.

He joined SingPost a year ago from DHL, where he was CEO of DHL Global Forwarding for South East Asia. Ang was a member of the DHL Global Forwarding Asia Pacific Management Board until 2014.
Lim said, “SingPost remains committed to developing and strengthening the company’s end-to-end e-commerce logistics business and capabilities. Sam brings with him 35 years of experience in the logistics sector that will help pave the way for SingPost to drive synergies and efficiencies between two of our important businesses – eCommerce logistics and freight forwarding, as we build out our integrated network.”
SingPost will officially launch its S$182m Regional eCommerce Logistics Hub in late 2016 to create capacity for further growth in eCommerce logistics. The hub is intended to improve SingPost’s speed to market as it brings its eCommerce logistics capabilities, comprising Quantium Solutions, SP Parcels, Famous Holdings and SP Commerce, all under one roof.
Lim concluded, “Sam’s appointment to Quantium Solutions will bolster SingPost’s efforts to build an eCommerce logistics ecosystem that enables end-to-end solutions covering four critical levers namely, transportation, warehousing and fulfilment, last mile delivery and returns, and front-end support.”
