andrew hill

Commercial Director

Andrew joined Electio in 2014 and heads up the team responsible for developing new commercial client relationships. It’s the perfect role for someone who spent 20 years in the logistics industry, most recently with Yodel and CollectPlus developing delivery services for major retailers, before moving on to a delivery management technology business, building carrier partner relationships and helping to develop innovative new services.

Andrew’s claim to fame is being instrumental in the development and launch of the first Pick-Up Drop-Off (PUDO) network in the UK, a service that has transformed the e-retail delivery industry.

Andrew has a reputation of being an all-round nice guy and no matter what anyone else says – Andrew insists he isn’t bald, he chooses to sport his super short hairstyle.
