LEIGHTON BUZZARD, England, Oct. 2, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Leading omnichannel fulfillment service provider and tech company OPLOG is excited to announce the appointment of former Amazon Regional Manager, Azeem Baig, as the company’s Vice President of Fulfillment. Baig will play a critical role in OPLOG’s mission of building a global fulfillment network, enhancing customer experience, driving operational excellence, and delivering unparalleled service on a global scale.
Baig’s esteemed 7-year tenure at Amazon has equipped him with a nuanced understanding of the global fulfillment logistics landscape. He has significantly shaped the fulfillment domain by starting as a Country Manager in MENA and later serving as Operations Manager in EMEA.
His roles have consistently spanned driving safety and performance, pioneering business improvement strategies, and overseeing transformational projects across the EMEA and MENA regions.

His keen strategic understanding was also demonstrated when he successfully launched six new delivery stations for Amazon Logistics.
In 2023, OPLOG embarked on a year of global expansion, opening two new fulfillment centers in the US and the UK, and is set to unveil another in Germany by year-end. Azeem’s expertise will be instrumental in shaping the company’s growth strategy and ensuring that each new center seamlessly integrates into OPLOG’s tech-enabled ecosystem.
