AirAsia taps former Pos Malaysia boss to join its logistics arm

KUALA LUMPUR: AirAsia Group chief executive officer Tan Sri Tony Fernandes said Datuk Mohd Shukrie Mohd Salleh, the former boss at Pos Malaysia Bhd, is joining the low cost airline’s logistics arm.

Shukrie, 43, resigned from his post at Pos Malaysia in December.

“Great to announce Datuk Shukrie formerly CEO of Pos Malaysia has joined AirAsia” at its logistics business Redbox, Fernandes said on Twitter today.

AirAsia had launched Redbox, billed as a low cost, express courier and parcel delivery service in 2014.

Fernandes described Redbox in his tweet today today as a “very, very powerful e-commerce Asean and Asian logistics company.”
