Aramex launches new addition to Shop & Ship service

DUBAI, October 25, 2017

Aramex, a global provider of comprehensive logistics and transportation solutions, has announced a brand new addition to its innovative and hugely successful last-mile delivery service, Shop & Ship (S&S).

Due to the global high demand for Shop & Ship, increasing customer base, and rapidly evolving needs of e-commerce customers, Aramex has launched its new and exclusive membership option: “Shop & Ship FLEX”, said a statement.

The main benefit of "S&S FLEX" membership is the rate calculation, which is based on 100 grams versus the usual 500 grams weight breaks, enabling customers to save up to 90 per cent on shipping costs compared to similar services. It will also provide customers with a number of additional benefits, including:

•    Complimentary protection against damage and loss of all shipments (up to $2,500 in value).
•    25 per cent off on S&S Perfume, a hugely popular perfume shipping service.
•    Smart Saver, a service offering extra savings on packages when shipped together.
•    25 per cent off on S&S Select, an affordable way to shop and ship personal beauty products from around the world.
•    20 per cent off on heavyweight shipments (packages of over 3kg).
•    30 per cent off on return services.

Hassan Mikail, chief e-commerce officer at Aramex, said: “We are pleased to have launched our new S&S FLEX membership program.”

“We continue to see significant demand from our customers and want to provide them with innovative solutions which meet their global online shopping needs. We put a heavy focus on extending our global footprint to better connect more consumers worldwide, and our use of integrated technology will continue to be a key differentiator for us,” he said.

“Our ongoing innovation and investment in technology is what has allowed us to introduce FLEX in record time, from ideation to implementation. Such programmes will also boost the rollout of the service faster and wider, across the globe,” he added.

“The new service will also serve as a remedy to consolidation of goods, since the savings are happening now at much smaller 100 gram weight breaks,” Mikail added.

The new membership is competitively priced at $119 per year for both existing and new customers. The membership benefits will give members more value and flexibility when shopping online globally, said a statement.

Mikail continued: “We think the programme will also serve the merchant side of the ecommerce industry, allowing them to be more competitive and on global scale”.

Shop & Ship is an online last-mile delivery service from Aramex which enables hundreds of thousands of consumers around the world to receive purchased goods from online stores in the US, the UK, and more than 20 other countries - quickly and at affordable rates. The service is available in over 50 countries worldwide, it stated. – TradeArabia News Service
