01 January 2022

Aramex, a leading global provider of logistics and transportation solutions has partnered with Virtuzone, the leading company formation specialists in the UAE, to launch AMP – the first e-commerce-focused accelerator programme in the UAE and the Mena region.

As an official partner of Virtuzone for AMP, Aramex will provide AMP members with preferential rates on deliveries, flexible payment terms and complimentary Aramex Smart credits. Introduced by Aramex in 2020 to boost e-commerce growth in the region, Aramex Smart is the industry’s first comprehensive delivery, payment and returns solution for e-tailers.

The AMP programme offers e-commerce start-ups AED 40,000 worth of premium benefits and subsidies to reduce the operational costs of starting their e-commerce business in the first year. These include trade licencing, shipping, logistics, warehousing, e-commerce website development, digital marketing, payment gateway, and more. To make the accelerator programme accessible to any entrepreneur, it is offered free of cost with the establishment of an e-commerce company with Virtuzone.

Ahmed Marie, General Manager of Aramex in the UAE, said: “The powerful combination of Aramex’s expertise, and the disruptive solutions provided by AMP will provide long-term and sustainable benefits not just to those joining the programme, but to the country’s overall SME and e-commerce sector.”

George Hojeige, Chief Executive Officer of Virtuzone, said: “We have built a longstanding partnership with Aramex, as we believe they are one of the key players in the UAE’s start-up sector, particularly in the booming e-commerce industry. While we make it easier for aspiring e-commerce entrepreneurs to start their business, Aramex has the exact solutions that will help e-commerce start-ups serve the needs of their target market with proven reliability and efficiency. Together, we aspire to amplify the e-commerce revolution in the region.”
