Aramex launches e-commerce fulfilment centre in Dubai


Aramex has inaugurated a partially automated fulfilment centre in Dubai to support the rapid growth of its e-commerce business with B2B retailers.

The new 60,000 sq m centre is one of Aramex’s largest fulfilment warehouses across the region. It is located at Dubai Logistics City, it is temperature-controlled, and it features new technologies including a ‘Pick to Light’ system, which uses light-directed picking technology to improve accuracy and efficiency, and an automated conveyer belt system.

Iyad Kamal, Chief Operating Officer at Aramex, said: “Aramex’s new fulfilment centre will help support the rapid growth of our logistics business and our retailer’s omni-channel sales strategies. The facility’s technology strengthens our position by ensuring fast, seamless and reliable fulfilment. It forms an important component of our digital transformation strategy and our efforts to improve our logistics offering for retailers across the world.”

Saeed Mukhtar, Global Head of Logistics at Aramex, added: “The centre will expand our global logistics capacity and enable us to help more start-ups and established businesses receive, process and deliver orders to customers through effective supply chain management.”

In FY2018, Logistics and Supply Chain Management operations grew by 16% over that financial year to AED302m, due to the strong demand for Aramex’s warehousing and other services across key markets.
