Established in 1982, Aramex has been a global provider of comprehensive logistics and transportation solutions for three decades, based in Dubai, UAE. We are proud to be widely recognized as a market leader that has shaped the evolution of the logistics industry in the MENA region. Today we are at the forefront of our industry, launching pioneering products and services to enable and facilitate trade and commerce for over tens of thousands of customers, representing a global brand that continues to expand into new areas around the world.
In 1997, Aramex was the first company from the Arab world to trade on the NASDAQ, later moving into private ownership through a leveraged management buyout with Dubai-based Abraaj Capital. Today, Aramex is a publicly traded company on the Dubai Financial Market (DFM: ARMX), leading a strong global alliance network of over 40 organizations. We currently employ more than 13,800 people in over 54 countries across the GCC, the Levant, Africa, Asia, Europe and North America, including 2,220 indirect employees worldwide.
We believe in acting responsibly towards all of our stakeholders, and pride ourselves on keeping our commitments to customers, business partners, shareholders, employees and communities, as well as on preserving the natural environment. We have always viewed sustainability as a strategic goal; it is therefore embedded in our business model and reflected in all our practices.
