AJEX launches new cross-border solutions for imports and exports
A joint venture between Saudi Arabia’s Ajlan & Bros Holding and SF Express, AJEX Logistics Services (AJEX), the Middle East specialist in express distribution and shipping solutions, recently announced the launch of two new services as part of a significant phase of expansion of the company.
The newly available AJEX International E-Commerce Express (ICX) and AJEX International Express Service (IXS) will provide businesses in China, Saudi Arabia, UAE, and Bahrain an enhanced portfolio of express cross-border delivery services for B2C and B2B.
Helping e-commerce businesses meet the demands of consumers, the ICX export and import options offer automated shipping, real-time tracking and proactive notification, and a personalized delivery experience.
AJEX International Express Service (IXS) provides B2B customers with a fully integrated service from China to Saudi Arabia, UAE, and Bahrain in four to seven business days, with exact transit time depending on origin and destination locations.
The newly launched express cross-border services by AJEX are part of the company’s efforts to support the soaring demand for cross-border commerce. China is Saudi Arabia’s first business partner and bilateral trade between China and Saudi Arabia reached US$ 65.2bn in 2020.
The Saudi CEP (Courier, Express, Parcel) international market is expected to reach US$ 1,032mn in 2027 from US$ 665mn in 2022, growing at a compound annual growth rate of 9.9%.
“Introducing ICX and IXS services in China, Saudi Arabia, UAE and Bahrain is an important enhancement to our service portfolio, driven by our customers’ requirements for speed, reliability, and transparency,” stated Nathalie Terault, Chief Marketing & Experience Officer, AJEX.
“Over the last 12 months, the team at AJEX has been working on developing our network and infrastructure with the opening of 20 additional distribution centers and 19 shipping centers in Saudi Arabia so that we can be closer to our customer,’’ remarked Tia Zhang, Chief of Express, AJEX.
