As Australia’s pre-eminent e-commerce delivery company, Australia Post – together with StarTrack – is committed to building e-commerce delivery solutions that provide merchants and consumers a truly global reach and end-to-end control.

To capitalise on the growth of e-commerce across Asia, Australia Post and StarTrack formed a joint venture with international courier and logistics giant Aramex. Known as Aramex Global Solutions (AGS), the joint venture combines the strength and breadth of Australia Post’s domestic and international delivery capabilities with Aramex’s global network to provide a truly international e-commerce solution for merchants and consumers.

“Our joint venture is an integrated e-commerce solution, streamlining supply chains from origin to destination,” says Nabil Zaghloul, CEO of AGS. “We’re growing the existing foundations of our business, which has very strong ties into Australia, and extending those capabilities with broader solutions into Asia through Aramex’s global networks.”

“We aim to provide e-commerce solutions that offer better value, faster transit, more visibility and integrated returns,” Zaghloul says. “Integrated returns are critical to the online experience as they afford consumers confidence and peace of mind.”

Australia Post already has strategic partnerships with leading companies across Asia to support growing trade in the region. Its joint venture with China Post, Sai Cheng Logistics International, is more than 10 years old, and provides integrated e-commerce and logistics solutions from and to China for the rest of the world.

Through its existing partnerships with China Post and major Chinese and Asian e-commerce marketplaces, Australia Post enables access to authentic and high-quality Australian products.

Australia Post is also committed to helping Australian consumers buy online globally, while helping Australian businesses to transact and trade with customers worldwide, particularly in China and Asia where demand for Australian products can help grow their businesses. AGS will complement these global e-commerce capabilities.

“Everything today is about technology, visibility and convenience,” Zaghloul says. Through its combined investments in these joint ventures and new technology, Australia Post and StarTrack are emerging as a regional leader committed to providing reliable and convenient e-commerce solutions.
