Byrd’s modern technology, which is transforming the 250-year-old parcel shipping process, makes various logistics processes for retailers seem like a walk in the park.

Thanks to the online platform goods can be stored or large orders can be processed flexibly and transparently. With just a few clicks, a courier can be requested, customized packaging specified, shop systems connected, and shipments tracked until they reach the customer. This way, Byrd helps retailers to save money, time and to concentrate on their core business to sell even more successfully.

Due to increasing interest in our client’s product and the company’s growth potential, Byrd is currently looking for a Chief Logistic Officer – to bring business to the next level.
