Aramex is a leading global logistics and transportation
solutions provider. Founded in 1982 as an express operator, the company rapidly
evolved into a global brand recognised for its customised services and
innovative multi-product offering. In an exciting move, Aramex acquired Berco
Express in December 2011, bringing improved technology, best logistics
practices and a committed global team to the company. A publicly traded company
on the Dubai Financial Market (DFM: ARMX), Aramex employs more than 13 900
talented and dedicated individuals in over 360 locations, across 60 countries
worldwide, leading a strong alliance network by bringing together 40
independent express companies from around the world.

Shopping services. Store-to-Door Courier services are available at Pick n Pay

More recently, Aramex has acquired PostNet Southern Africa,
further extending Aramex’s service proposition to many more locations across
the country, with customers now being able to pick up and drop off packages

corporate point of view, there are finite plans to expand across Southern
