Delivery outsourcer Deliv hires Amazon exec

Palo Alto, Caif. - Same-day delivery start-up Deliv has appointed Jeff Helms as head of delivery operations. The former senior Amazon leader joins the crowdsourced, same-day delivery provider as it plans for rapid expansion across the country.

In addition to managing last mile operations in Southern California for Amazon, Helms spearheaded the launch of the first Amazon logistics delivery stations in North America. Deliv allows retailers to offer their customers a same-day delivery option as they shop from their website, mobile app or from their physical brick and mortar store. By adding the Deliv same-day delivery option into their existing checkout process, the retailer fulfils orders from inventory from their local brick and mortar stores while maintaining ownership and data from each customer transaction.
