Why Choose Aramex Over Its Competitors?

Aramex has core values that have helped it grow into the brand it is today. According to the Aramex website, “instead of investing heavily in infrastructure, we acquire or partner with domestic-focused logistics companies that have strong local networks, knowledge and transportation solutions already in place for efficient and effective last-mile delivery.”

Aramex offers shipment guarantees that set it apart from its competitors. It picks up and delivers within the days and times it sets, offering the fastest delivery on the same day or the next day of pickup for its express delivery shipments.

Aramex Domestic Shipping Rates

Aramex offers an easy online shipping calculator that will provide you with an estimated cost depending on the shipping location, where the shipment is going, and what you are shipping. You can also choose your shipping option to determine the final price. Aramex offers Express as well as Urgent delivery, which can get a package to its destination same-day door to door if necessary and within the same country. 

All Express packages shipped with Aramex come with a tracking number that can be searched using the Aramex website as well as the integrated web APIs. 

Because Aramex has over 600 offices across 65 countries, domestic prices depend on your home country. Find out the cost of shipping domestically by filling out the shipment form on your home country’s Aramex website.

Does Aramex Deliver on Weekends?

Whether or not Aramex delivers on weekends depends on the country in which the packages are being delivered and whether the courier partners in this country deliver on weekends.

Most Aramex offices, however, do deliver on weekends and pride themselves on the fact that this sets them apart from other courier services that do not offer this option.

Many offices are also open for shipping on weekends too, which means you can ship and deliver a parcel domestically within the same weekend and have it arrive before Monday.
