At 16,000 sq.m., Logistics company Aramex’s new e-fulfilment facility, based in Kuwait’s Agility Logistics Park (ALP), could be the largest logistics warehouse in the country.

The facility in ALP, Sulaibiya, will operate automated conveyor belts and sorting machines, all of which are geared towards faster and more efficient operations, according to a statement from Aramex, which is headquartered and listed in Dubai.

Fadi Kikoloff, General Manager of Aramex Kuwait, said: “We are pleased to expand our fulfillment infrastructure to deliver our customers in Kuwait and the wider region the speed and reliability they deserve.

“This new facility is an important investment that will help support the rapid growth of our logistics business. The facility’s cutting-edge technology strengthens our position by ensuring higher capacity, faster sortation process and reduced transit times. We believe this will allow us to fulfil growing customer demands for more reliable services.”

The news follows Aramex’s announcement last week that it is to split its business into two - Aramex Express and Aramex Logistics, handling B2C and B2B, respectively.
