Aramex's Shop and Ship in logistics deal with JadoPado
Dubai-based e-commerce store JadoPado will now be able to serve customers overseas through a partnership with Shop and Ship, the online shipping delivery service powered by logistics solutions provider Aramex, it was announced yesterday.
Shop and Ship enables consumers from 52 major cities worldwide, to purchase from any online store around the world. The service sets up postal addresses to receive orders in New York, London, Shanghai, Dubai, Mumbai, Istanbul, Hong Kong, Johannesburg, and then forwards the packages on to the consumer’s actual home address.
For JadoPado, the Shop and Ship collaboration will allow the UAE-based retailer of electronics and IT products to extend its services to international markets beyond the GCC by providing customers with quick and efficient access to Shop and Ship’s reliable, international shipping services.
Customers will be able to buy items from JadoPado, have them delivered to their Dubai Shop and Ship addresses and then shipped overseas to their home addresses. JadoPado’s integration with Shop and Ship allows seamless and easy checkout for Shop and Ship members and also makes it easier for the online retailer to authenticate shoppers and their details.
Hassan Mikail, global director for E-commerce at Aramex, whose headquarters are in Dubai, said: “The UAE has rapidly developed into a popular global shopping destination but still has a fledgling e-commerce sector. This partnership with JadoPado opens the marketplace to thousands of customers that, until now, have not been able to purchase their products from online UAE retailers.
“Currently only a handful of e-commerce companies based in the Middle East have an international customer base because cross-border shipping poses major challenges. Our innovative merchant solutions are specifically designed to simplify international shipping for online retailers as we handle everything from customs clearance and processing to last mile delivery, in addition to expanding the company’s geographic reach.”
Mikail added: “Shop and Ship is a focus for our e-commerce offering at Aramex, it is part of our strategic approach to facilitate cross border trade and to better connect markets – including emerging markets – around the world.”
Omar Kassim, founder of JadoPado, said: “E-commerce businesses need powerful solutions that allow them to optimise their customers’ shopping experience and maximize convenience for them. We’re happy to have found a partner in Shop and Ship to help us reach a broader customer base without compromising on our customer experience.
“With the global expertise and logistics network of Shop and Ship, we’re able to offer consumers around the world more choice in terms of the delivery options for their international orders.”
