Aramex lowers costs for Hong Kong exporters
The Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC) and Aramex have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to launch a joint promotion for the hktdc.com Small Orders online transaction platform.
The MoU is aimed at lowering costs for Hong Kong exporters using the Small Orders platform, while simultaneously increasing fleet utilisation across Aramex’s network, which is particularly strong in the Middle East.
Under the agreement, suppliers on hktdc.com Small Orders will enjoy lower shipping costs when delivering via Aramex's worldwide network. The MoU also lowers costs for buyers from the MENA region seeking to source quality products on hktdc.com Small Orders.
The MoU was signed in Dubai by HKTDC deputy executive director, Benjamin Chau and Aramex CEO, Hussein Hachem.
"The partnership will further facilitate small-volume online transactions, which are becoming an increasingly prevalent sourcing model, especially for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs),” said Chau.
“With Aramex's specialty in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region, we are opening the door to a market of huge economic potential and trade opportunities for our buyers and suppliers,” he added.
"It gives us great pleasure to be partnering with HKTDC. China presents one of the greatest business opportunities for us and we believe this agreement will play a major role in boosting Aramex brand awareness in the Chinese Mainland and Hong Kong markets,” said Hachem.
