Dubai-listed logistics company Aramex is partnering with the emirate’s International Humanitarian City (IHC) to enhance efficiencies in delivering aid around the world.

International Humanitarian City, based in Dubai, is the largest independent humanitarian logistics hub in the world.

Aramex said it will use its network to help transport food, medicine and vaccines.

The IHC community’s COVID-19 response last year reached 119 countries with 1,023 dispatched shipments and $98.7 million in value, Aramex said in a statement to Dubai Financial Market (DFM).
