The CargoWise rollout represents an integral milestone in Aramex’s digital transformation journey that strategically leverages innovative solutions to satisfy evolving customer needs and allows the company to swiftly adapt to changing market conditions. The scope of the implementation will cover the freight forwarding product across Aramex’s global network.
Aramex’s unique approach sees CargoWise implemented simultaneously across its worldwide network of 1,200 freight forwarding specialists, spanning Asia, Europe and the Middle East. CargoWise will support Aramex’s freight forwarding and customs operations and enhance the overall user experience for their employees and customers.

Aramex is rewriting the textbook on implementing a global transport management system on such a large scale, which is a testament to our agility and speed in responding to the global changing environment. We have shortened the development cycle in years and avoided the landscape of operating a mix of legacy and modernized systems.
