Dubai: Aramex has struck a service level agreement with Transportr, the digital freight platform, by which it will provide the "best possible agreements" on rates and transit time for sea freight logistics.

The partnership is in line with Aramex’s plans to benefit from further expansion into Abu Dhabi’s logistics sector for its freight forwarding and B2B categories. Earlier, Ittihad International Investment, an  industrial group in Abu Dhabi, signed an agreement with Transportr to be its service provider for all sea and land transportation in the GCC.
