Aramex offers 1,000 Saudi nationals jobs in last mile delivery work

Dubai-based logistics company Aramex has reportedly signed up over 1,000 Saudi nationals onto Aramex Fleet, its crowd-sourced delivery platform in the kingdom according to Arabian Business.

The programme – launched in December 2018 – aims to offer Saudi nationals employment opportunities in flexible last mile delivery work.

“Whenever there is a spike in business, instead of recruiting new people and having them on standby, we have a crowdsource model,” Chief Operating Officer Iyad Kama explained.

“People come and subscribe to the model online, put their licence, ID and all the paperwork required, come into classroom training at Aramex and go with a courier on a route.

“From there, they are on standby to start delivering packages. Whenever there is a peak, they notify them.”

Kamal added that the drivers, many of whom specialise in particular routes and geographies, are compensated on a delivery basis.
