Over the last two years, Saudi-based entrepreneurs and startups have grown exponentially, the majority of which are in the e-commerce businesses.

With Aramex Go, Aramex provides an innovative, easy to use platform meeting the needs of these entrepreneurs and startups. Users of the platform will benefit from competitive rates and flexible payment solutions through online payment, cash upon collection, as well as cash-on-delivery (COD) services. The platform also delivers a great level of efficiency by allowing multiple shipment creation per session.
Abdulaziz Alnowaiser, General Manager of Aramex in KSA, said: “We are excited to launch Aramex Go in Saudi Arabia, and are encouraged by the booming startup scene in the Kingdom. We believe that our innovative solution will be a gamechanger for entrepreneurs whose business models depend on reliable, affordable, and convenient logistics services. Moreover, the launch of this innovative platform is in line with our strategy to enhance customer experience, ensure healthy and uninterrupted flow of shipments, and boost efficiencies.”
Mohammed Sleeq, Chief Digital Officer of Aramex, said: “At Aramex, we recognize the incredible impact entrepreneurs, startups and social sellers have on the communities and the economy. One of the most crucial elements for the growth and expansion of these integral sectors is ensuring they have reach and access to their customers, and we're proud to play a major role in helping them grow and flourish. We believe that Aramex GO will champion the success of Saudi entrepreneurs by providing them reliable, efficient, and technology-driven platforms that will enhance their competitiveness in local and global markets, as well as allow them to stay agile and responsive to their customer’s evolving needs.”
Over the last year, Aramex has accelerated investments towards its progressive digital transformation journey, marked by initiatives including the migration to the cloud, investment in asset-light technology-driven solutions such as Aramex Spot and Aramex Fleet, and operation-enhancing AI technologies that optimize delivery routes and shorten delivery times. Aramex also launched Aramex SMART, a full stack payment and delivery solution for e-tailers, as well as CargoWise, an integrated logistics execution platform that provides customization, automation and real-time visibility across global freight forwarding operations.
