Aramex expands its Middle East operations


Global transportation solutions provider Aramex is expanding its supply-chain solutions network in the Middle East.

As part of the expansion plan, the company has opened a new logistics centre in Egypt, a move that is set to enhance its current 5,000 square metre facility.

In line with Aramex’s expansion plans in North Africa, the new 6,500 square metre logistics centre in Cairo will bolster Aramex’s already strong presence in Egypt in response to the country’s ongoing economic growth, said a statement.

Aramex, listed on the Dubai Financial Market, is the leading provider of total transportation solutions, offering express delivery, freight forwarding and logistics solutions.

“Aramex is committed to providing our customers in Egypt with efficient transport networks and a world-class logistics infrastructure that meets the demands of the country’s rapid economic growth,”
said Samer Gharaibeh, Aramex Chief Executive Officer, Africa. 

Located in the Abou Rawash area with easy access to the ring road, the new Cairo facility forms a vital part of Aramex’s supply chain solutions infrastructure in the country and links through to Aramex’s other key logistics centers across the MENA region.

The advanced facility implements global standards in security and the latest technologies, including a comprehensive system for processing and managing online orders.

“The new facility, coupled with our country-wide express distribution capability and real time shipment tracking services, is an ideal solution for IT and telecommunication companies that operate in a fiercely competitive market,” said Gharaibeh.
