Dubai : UAE-headquartered logistics and transportation solutions provider, Aramex, announced the launch of its last-mile delivery solution.
Aramex Spot will be launched across the UAE and Saudi Arabia to cater to the growing demand for more pick-up options, aligned with a thriving e-commerce industry, a statement said.
Aramex has collaborated with multiple commercial locations to use their outlets as pick-up, drop-off (PUDO) locations, and intends to grow them to 150 Spot locations across the two countries by end of 2020.
"This latest addition to our last-mile delivery solutions will allow the end recipient to conveniently pick-up their shipments from a nearby supermarket, pharmacy or other commercial outlets," said Iyad Kamal, COO, Aramex.
"With this proprietary tech comes our industry track record; we are well positioned and confident of introducing a robust PUDO network," said Mohammed Sleeq, Chief Digital Officer, Aramex.
"Aramex Spot joins Aramex Fleet, our crowdsourcing delivery arm, together forming a zero-asset tech driven platform that supports our capacity scalability efforts on the last mile."
Aramex launched Aramex Fleet in December 2018 and WhatsApp for Business in October 2018, in a bid to digitise and simplify the end-to-end shipment journey for improved customer experiences, the statement added.
