There couldn’t be a more favorable climate or time for businesses to enter the Middle East - and if you are a startup, a new venture, or even an established business - then you realize the need for an experienced local partner who can help you navigate the ropes in a new market.
Aramex can offer a number of critical services to any new trade-based venture seeking to exploit the new opportunities in the region. As a full service logistics provider, from domestic parcel delivery to fully managed supply chain processes, and even e-commerce facilitation, the company has the flexibility to support the smallest start-up to the most sophisticated multinational.
Perhaps the four key services available to any new venture that relies on trade or e-commerce are:
– Express delivery services
– Payment solutions
– E-commerce support
– Supply chain management
Express delivery services
Express services are essential for your business, and Aramex has long experience in delivering time-sensitive documents and parcels door-to-door around the world, and at a number of different rates to suit your budget. The company can also manage your deliveries across borders, with a complex web of customs clearances and policies at the many borders that exist in the Middle East for inbound shipments, and offer full tracking, SMS and e-mail delivery notification.
Flexible payment solutions
For any new business starting out, value-added services can be critical, especially in the forms of payment collection in a region that has yet to fully embrace credit card or other online payment mechanisms. Aramex can support delivery businesses by collecting cash on delivery, fulfilling return services, and arranging third parties to pay for shipping rates – also in cash. Insurance is also offered on all shipments.
E-commerce is a booming market in the region, and your company needs efficient solutions to help you start selling. Aramex has created its own tools, which can then be hosted as an API on a company’s site and fulfill payment and process orders, delivery and accompanying documentation – enabling small start-ups to start selling straight away. Aramex has also Cash on Delivery, helping companies deliver products to customers that don't have or use credit cards.
Supply chain management
Supply Chain management is not an easy feat to master; but it is an essential component for most companies. An outsourced supply-chain management function can help reduce inventory costs, increase transaction speed, and respond more promptly to customer requirements.
