Headquarters Dubai

Sector Logistics

Originally launched as Arab American Express by Fadi Ghandour and Bill Kingson in Amman, Jordan in 1982, the company relocated to Dubai and began expanding its services thanks in large part to a partnership with FedEx.

The first global courier company serving the Middle East region, Aramex grew to the point that it became the first Arab company to be listed on an American stock exchange when its shares were traded on Nasdaq in 1997. Through a series of strategic acquisitions, it is now able to service markets in East Africa and Australasia.
