Tesco’s Global Head of Logistics set to become Chief Operating Officer at Zeus Labs

Alistair Lindsay

Road-freight software specialist Zeus Labs has made their most significant appointment to date, with Alistair Lindsay taking the role of Chief Operating Officer. He joins from global giant Tesco Group, where he spent over 10 years, finishing as Global Head of Logistics.

As Zeus Labs Chief Operating Officer, Lindsay will play a key role in helping to develop the founders’ (Jai Kanwar and Clemente Theotokis) business vision. He will support the refinement of the strategy and delivery of the long-term growth plan, and work with Jai and Clemente to set the direction of operations across the business in new and existing geographies. Lindsay will also help to expand Zeus Labs’ team.

Commenting on his move, Lindsay said: “The UK Freight sector, like freight sectors across all regions globally, is overly complex and has not evolved at the same speed as other industries when it comes to the adoption of technology. Zeus Labs can and will change that for good.

“Not only does Zeus Labs’ proposition simplify the task of executing the physical move through their slick digital platform, but crucially it addresses the challenge the freight industry is now facing with respect to the movement of fresh air/empty trailers across the length and breadth of the country.

“The vision Jai and Clemente have for Zeus Labs, coupled with their unrivalled and positive track record since they went live operationally was too much for me to ignore. My career to date, and most recently, with Tesco, has provided me with a great opportunity to learn new skills and gain new experiences across multiple geographies and disciplines. I can now apply all that knowledge in my new role to drive Zeus Labs to become the biggest company in digital freight,” concluded Lindsay.

Jai Kanwar, Co-Founder of Zeus Labs said, “If you want to be the best, you have to work with the best and this is where Alistair Lindsay comes in. He is without doubt one of the most respected and capable logistic experts in the entire haulage and freight sector, and his experience and expertise is a game-changer for Zeus Labs.

“We are now ready to supercharge our drive to bring positive and sustainable digital transformation to the entire logistics market. We are delighted Alistair has chosen to join us.”
