Dubai-based Aramex optimises branch office connectivity


NewsHubDubai-based Aramex , a global provider of logistics and transportation services, has evolved into a global brand in the three decades since it was founded in 1982.
It is a publicly traded company on the Dubai Financial Market and employs more than 17,000 people in 575 locations across 70 countries. The company also leads a network of partners that provides a global presence and brings together 40 independent express companies from around the world.
Its services include logistics, international and domestic express delivery, freight forwarding, secure records and information management. Its e-services include e-business solutions.
