Aramex has announced the opening of a new 4,000 square logistics centre in Bahrain designed to support the company’s expanding supply-chain solutions network across the GCC.
Located in the Bahrain International Airport Free Zone, the state-of-the art facility will combine sea, air and land freight capabilities to offer an unparalleled third party logistics (3PL) management system.
The infrastructure investment underlines Bahrain’s increasing role as a supply chain solutions hub, led by its important geographic position within Aramex’s regional network, connecting by land to Kuwait, Qatar and KSA.
Streamlined by Aramex’s advanced customs clearing process at key land border checkpoints, the facility will form a vital part of Aramex’s supply chain model, linking through to key logistics centers within the GCC.
Its strategic location in the airport’s Global Logistics Services (GLS) zone will also provide convenient access and ensure quick turnaround for cargo being shipped between the aircraft and warehouse.
Catering to the needs of a range of industries, including telecommunications, electronics, and textiles, Aramex’s CEO for the GCC, Hussein Hachem says that the new centre will help provide customers with a competitive edge. “At Aramex, we are committed to providing our customers in Bahrain with the most efficient distribution network possible, one that is supported by world-class infrastructure,” said Hachem.
“At our new facility in Bahrain, we are able to develop highly-customized solutions for retail customers that respond to their unique needs and meet the demands of an increasingly competitive market,” he added.
The TAPA-certified facility implements global standards in security and boasts loading docks and advanced warehouse management technology, including a comprehensive system for processing orders.
