Aramex bags Tech Data deal

Aramex has fought off stiff competition to retain the contract to handle the Middle East logistics and warehousing needs of distributor Tech Data.

Aramex has fought off stiff competition to retain the contract to handle the regional logistics and warehousing needs of distributor Tech Data in the Middle East. The new deal builds on the existing relationship between the two companies that had seen Aramex handle Tech Data deliveries within the UAE as well as its freight lines from Jebel Ali to the rest of the GCC and the Levant.

Under the terms of the new contract, Aramex will handle Tech Data’s warehousing and logistics at its recently opened US$7m logistics centre located at the Jebel Ali Free Zone. Aramex will also carry out all clearance, delivery, storage, inventory management and order processing.

Mike Vosper, operations director at Tech Data Middle East, said: “As the region’s leading IT distributor, we require efficient and seamless logistics solutions for our complex and critical distribution requirements across the Middle East.”

“In selecting Aramex to manage our logistics and warehousing processes, the key driver was quality and reliable services that Tech Data stands for. In Aramex, we found a solid partner that will further strengthen and improve our distribution capabilities,” he added.

Iyad Kamal, VP for logistics and ground services at Aramex, said: “This is a big contract and an impressive win for our logistics operation. It also represents a clear recognition of the quality of services we offer here at Aramex.”

“Tech Data appreciated the value of our cutting edge technology and our ability to deliver a multi-modal transportation solution that combines the full range of our land, air, sea, clearance, warehousing and brokerage services in a single system.”
