Boxhub is pleased to announce that it has appointed Tarun Somani as its Chief Operating Officer. The startup that revolutionized the shipping container purchase experience, is excited about Somani’s addition to the team and believes his wealth of knowledge and expertise will advance their already impressive growth trajectory.


“When we started Boxhub, our goal was to make buying shipping containers as easy as shopping for a new pair of shoes online. With today’s announcement, we’re thrilled to welcome Tarun Somani, who brings a wealth of operational and marketplace experience to the company. He will be responsible for Boxhub’s day-to-day business and will be based in Toronto.” – Maximilian Birner, CEO.


The new Chief Operating Officer of the tech company, Tarun Somani, is a seasoned operations executive with a proven track record in building and scaling highly successful businesses across the globe. Somani has spent decades gathering leadership experience from various internationally successful brands. His impressive resume includes leadership roles at four different last-mile & delivery unicorns, serving as General Manager of Operations at Ola, Director of Operations at Careem, General Manager at Lyft, and Vice President Marketplace at Gojek.


Boxhub insists that its mission is to provide the best possible customer experience for its buyers, making it easy and accessible for containers to be upcycled. While the leading online marketplace for shipping containers offers a full-service delivery option that gets the containers to the customer’s doorstep, buyers can also pick up the containers themselves and facilitate delivery to their preferred location.
