World class companies familiar with Aramex are well aware of the transportation services, solutions and attention to detail this Amman, Jordan-based company offers.
“We are a major express operator in the Middle East Gulf region,” says Safwan Tannir, Aramex senior vice president of cargo.
Aramex and its global alliance of companies cover the world through one of the largest transportation networks.
“We have hundreds of offices, thousands of vehicles and teams of highly professional people ready to serve our clients and attend to the details of their business; around the clock and around the globe,” says Tannir. “We are into inbound and outbound freight, ocean and land transport within the Gulf region and also offer shop and ship services.”
The Aramex transportation network utilizes state-of-the-art communication technologies and delivery systems making it completely integrated and online throughout the world 24-hours-a-day, seven days a week.
One of the company’s unique services is its Shop & Ship Mailbox Service.
“Companies open an account with us from which they have all mail or purchases come to a mailbox in New York or London,” he explains. “We then ship the mail and or packages out at the frequency the company desires. We also offer other services for our clients.”
The service was developed as a solution to the difficulties customers encounter while placing their online orders from the United States or United Kingdom sites. A great number of these sites either do not offer overseas shipping or charge high shipping rates, and to make things more complicated, most websites require a local US or UK address to complete the transaction.
Another unique service Aramex offers is its Catalog Shopping Service. Here a wide selection of American and European catalogs are made available that enable consumers the ability to shop at their own time and leisure.
While headquartered in Amman, Aramex operates its hub in Dubai. From Dubai the company serves the whole of the Middle East and Indian subcontinent.
Aramex offers its Logistics Services through three major logistics centers in Jebel Ali Free Trade Zone in the UAE, Bahrain Free Zone and Queen Alia International Airport in Jordan. All locations offer strategic advantages and are connected technologically with EXE warehouse management software. The warehouses offer receiving, put away services, inventory management, cycle counting, order allocation, order picking, replenishment, cross docking and full information management. Radio frequency and bar coding provides delivery accuracy.
Fulfillment services are offered as well as real-time tracking.
“We have been experiencing a lot of growth and are getting more exposure in the market,” says Tannir. “We are strong in sales and have opened opportunities in the market.”
From heavy machiner to time-sensitive documents
In addition, Aramex offers transportation services such as International Express, Domestic Express, freight forwarding, logistics solutions and other specialized services.
Aramex demonstrated its capabilities as the region’s leading transportation and logistics solutions supplier when it delivered the entire content of heavy machinery exhibition from Turkey to Saudi Arabia for the inauguration of the first MachiTech exhibition in Jeddah.
The MachiTech exhibition displayed products of more than 82 exhibitors from Turkey specializing in the heavy machinery industry.
Aramex handled all transportation and logistics, including swift customs clearance of all machinery and material, and did so again for the show in Amman. The company will perform these service when the exhibition is held in Jeddah, Damascus, Cairo and Dubai.
In a bid to eliminate any chance of loss or mishandling, the administration of the Jordan House of Parliament selected Aramex to deliver important documents to the members of its Lower and Upper Houses as well as members of the Cabinet. In June, Aramex became the House’s official dossier couri
