Muscat: Asyad Express, logistics service provider for the Asyad Group, signed an agreement with Vodafone Oman for the provision of end-to-end fulfilment and express delivery services.

Managed from its new state-of-the-art fulfilment centre, this is the latest partnership for Asyad Express as it continues to position itself as a regional fulfilment and distribution hub for e-commerce and integrated logistics services.

Nasser bin Ahmed Al Sharji, Acting Chief Executive Officer of Oman Post and Asyad  Express, said, “As our business accelerates, we continue to evolve to drive the growth and modernisation of the logistics sector in the Sultanate. Our new partnership with Vodafone Oman will allow us to maximise this growth, and deliver a great service for our customers. It is among a rising number of businesses who are showing their confidence and trust in our unique services and capabilities as we contribute to the streamlining of eCommerce across the country.”

Lujaina Saif Al Kharusi, Head of Regulatory & Corporate Affairs at Vodafone, said, “Fulfilment services are growing in popularity and offer many advantages that make them a cost-effective choice. Especially as we are just entering the market in Oman, we are glad to draw on Asyad Express’ experience and established network. The partnership will enable us to streamline our entire delivery process, and ultimately offer our distributors and customers a more improved service.”
