In mid-2008, global transport services company Aramex opened a new logistics centre in Bahrain. The 4,000 sq/m facility is designed to support the company’s expanding supply-chain solutions network across the Gulf Cooperation Countries (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 a third party logistics (3PL) management system. The infrastructure investment underscores Bahrain’s increasing role as a supplychain solutions hub, led by its key geographic position within Aramex’s regional network, connecting by land to Kuwait, Qatar and Saudi Arabia.

Streamlined by Aramex’s customs clearing process at key land border checkpoints, the facility forms a vital part of Aramex’s supply chain model, linking through to key logistics centres within the GCC. Its location in the airport’s Global Logistics Services zone will also provide access and turnaround for cargo being shipped between the aircraft and warehouse.

Catering to the needs of a range of industries, including telecommunications, electronics, and textiles, the new centrewants to help provide customers with a competitive edge, according to Aramexchief executive officer for the GCC HussainHachem.

“At Aramex, we are committed to providing our customers in Bahrain with the most efficient distribution network possible, one that is supported by worldclass infrastructure,” Hachem said. “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.
