Aramex launches new fulfilment centre in Dubai

Aramex, a leading global provider of comprehensive logistics and transportation solutions, has launched a new, partially automated fulfilment centre in Dubai, UAE, to support the rapid growth of its e-commerce business with business-to-business (B2B) retailers.

Located at Dubai Logistics City and covering 60,000 sq m, the temperature-controlled centre is one of Aramex’s largest fulfillment warehouses across the region, said a company statement.

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, it said.

Iyad Kamal, chief operating officer at Aramex, said: “Our new fulfilment centre is an important investment that will help support the rapid growth of our logistics business and our retailer’s omni-channel sales strategies.”

“The facility’s cutting-edge 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,” he added.

Saeed Mukhtar, global head of logistics at Aramex, said: “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.”

“We are pleased to expand our fulfilment infrastructure to deliver our customers the speed and reliability that they deserve,” he added.

In FY2018, logistics and supply chain management operations grew by 16 per cent over that financial year to Dh302 million ($82.22 million), due to the strong demand for Aramex’s warehousing and other value-added services across key markets.

The company remains committed to improving that service offering to capture growth opportunities, it stated. – TradeArabia News Service
