Aramex and International Humanitarian City in Dubai (IHC), the largest humanitarian hub in the world; today announced entering into a partnership to drive efficiencies in the delivery of humanitarian services across the globe.
As part of the agreement, Aramex will be leveraging its extensive global network and deep industry expertise to support IHC in facilitating and expediting the transportation of aid including food, medicine, and vaccines to those who need it most around the world.
In addition, the alliance will pursue synergies in integrating innovation and energy efficiency in humanitarian initiatives, and in optimizing the storage of relief items.
“This partnership with IHC will help us leverage our core services and global network to deliver basic needs to those in need in a safe, reliable and timely manner,” noted Andy Van der Velde, President, Aramex.
