Published April 30th, 2006 - 02:38 GMT

ARAMEX, MENA and South Asia’s leading provider of total transportation solutions, today announced it won the bid for the contract to handle the logistics and warehousing for Tech Data FZ-LLC, the FORTUNE 500 global IT distributor.

The logistics specialist fought off stiff competition from some of the biggest operators in the sector to win the business. ARAMEX’s ability to meet the challenging quality criteria imposed by the IT giant was instrumental in winning the bid.

The new tie-up builds on an established partnership that had seen ARAMEX handle Tech Data deliveries within the UAE and along its freight lines from Jebel Ali to the rest of the GCC and Levant.

Under the terms of the new contract, ARAMEX will handle all Tech Data’s warehousing and logistics in its recently opened AED 26 million logistics centre in Jebel Ali Free Zone. It will also carry out all clearance, delivery, storage, inventory management, and order processing.

 

Tech Data’s business relies on error-free rapid delivery, and ARAMEX’S ability to offer cutting edge technology-backed processes was a crucial factor in its selection. Mike Vosper, Tech Data FZ-LLC Operations Director, said: “As the region’s leading IT distributor, we require  efficient & 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, ”

Iyad Kamal, ARAMEX’s Vice President for Logistics and Ground Services, stressed that “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.”

Kamal added that “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.”
