Aramex in freight deal with Air Arabia

Aramex, the Dubai-listed logistics and transportation provider, has announced that it has rolled out a 'Value Express' service that would target customers looking for lower shipping costs.

The sources said that the conglomerate has signed mutual agreement with budget carrier Air Arabia to transport parcels at economical rates.

The Value Express service will allow quicker shipments within the Middle East, North Africa and South Asia.

As per media reports, the new service will particularly benefit small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) - which represent 75 per cent of total operating companies in the Middle East - looking for reliable and cost-efficient solutions.
