Logistics company Aramex has opened a new, partially automated fulfilment centre in Dubai to support the rapid growth of its e-commerce business with B2B retailers.
Located at Dubai Logistics City and covering 645,835 sqft, the temperature-controlled centre is one of Aramex’s largest fulfilment warehouses across the region. 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.
“Aramex’s 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,” says Iyad Kamal, COO, Aramex. “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.”
“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,” adds Saeed Mukhtar, global head of logistics, Aramex.
In another development, Emaar Properties chairman, Mohamed Alabbar has, reportedly, resigned from the board of Aramex.
