Having started operations in Jordan, Aramex quickly headquartered in the UAE and has since expanded to become one of the world’s leading global logistics providers – all in just over 40 years. Since the early days of launch, Aramex has had one goal: to connect the world by bridging the gap between East and West and enabling growth and wealth for its customers.
Over the years since, it’s exceeded this aim with an unmatched portfolio of logistics and transportation solutions. This includes domestic and international express delivery, e-commerce shipping and fulfilment solutions, road, air, and sea freight services, supply chain management, consumer retail services, technical support, and much more.
Today, the company sits at the heart of an international global logistics network of over 17,000 employees across more than 600 offices in over 65 countries. Its customers include multinational businesses across e-commerce, SMEs, healthcare, and oil and gas.
Aside from a steadfast dedication to its customers, Aramex is also firmly committed to the planet. It was the region’s first logistics company to develop a sustainability report that highlights its green credentials, such as reducing carbon emissions by 20% since 2020 and reducing fuel by 46% per shipment.
Aramex has also reduced electricity usage by 55% per shipment and increased recycling by 17% – as it can continue to connect the world while reducing its environmental impact.
In recent years, Aramex saw its courier business increase by 10%, and its freight-forwarding revenues grow by 22% to achieve record revenues of AED 6.1bn in 2021. To cap off this recent success, almost a quarter of the company’s shares were purchased by GeoPost S.A, the parent company of Europe’s largest parcel delivery company DPD Group. This saw the logistics giant expand its stake to almost 30%.
