Aramex International, the Jordanian based company became the first express service provider to launch operations in post-war Iraq, where it says it has extensive expansion plans, to provide its transportation services to every Iraqi city in the near future.

“Given ARAMEX’s long history in the region, we are extremely well placed to enter the Iraqi market – this is a natural progression,” said Fadi Ghandour, president and CEO of ARAMEX International.

“Iraq could potentially become the commercial success story of the Middle East. Entry into new markets is always a challenge, and this market is one we are particularly well prepared for,” added Ghandour.

ARAMEX intends to leverage its global network that stretches from the Middle East to the Indian Subcontinent, to cater to the transportation needs of international businesses expected to enter the Iraqi market.

“We are currently able to deliver to Baghdad, and will soon expand the reach of our services to include other Iraqi cities,” concluded Ghandour.

ARAMEX is a major transportation provider in the Middle East and Indian Subcontinent and was founded in 1983. It was the first company to be listed in the NASDAQ and recently de-listed to enter into a private ownership in the Dubai-based Rasmalah fund.
