AUSTRALIA POST managing director and CEO, Ahmed Fahour is joining the board of global parcel express delivery and logistics company, Aramex.
The move is part of the strategic e-commerce alliance between Australia Post and Aramex announced in June.
It is being called “a natural progression in the strategic relationship between Australia Post and Aramex”, which includes a Singapore-based joint venture targeting the global e-commerce market, with a particular focus on Asia.
Mr Fahour’s appointment is subject to Aramex shareholder approval, which will be sought at the next annual general meeting in April 2017.
Mr Fahour said the joint venture would help Australia Post grow the Australian e-commerce market, capturing more inbound parcel volumes and providing a platform for outbound growth.
“This is a critical part of ensuring a sustainable future for Australia Post and securing Australian jobs,” Mr Fahour said.
