The international express logistics company J&T Express announced the launch of its express network in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Saudi Arabia on Friday. The two countries are the first markets to be covered by the firm in the Middle East, bringing J&T Express’ global network coverage to a total of 10 countries.
Plans for J&T Express’ Middle East expansion kicked off in April 2021, followed by eight months of inspections, site selection and trial operations.
J&T Express has established nationwide distribution networks and localized warehousing systems in both the UAE and Saudi Arabia, covering all local provinces and regions in the two countries. In addition, as an integral aspect of its courier service, UAE and Saudi Arabian versions of the company’s mobile application have also been launched simultaneously.
Sean Xiao, Head of J&T Express Middle East, said, “We hope that with J&T Express’ efficient and comprehensive delivery network, we can effectively improve the shopping experience of consumers in the UAE and Saudi Arabia, and contribute to the development of the e-commerce industry in both countries.”
Steven Fan, CEO of J&T Express, added, “The expansion to the UAE and Saudi Arabia marks an important step for J&T Express in establishing a global delivery network. In the future, the company will actively explore opportunities in emerging markets as part of its global strategy to connect the world with greater efficiency and bring logistical benefits to all.”
With the newly launched ventures, J&T Express’ network now covers 10 countries, including China, Indonesia, Vietnam, Malaysia, Thailand, the Philippines, Cambodia, Singapore, the UAE and Saudi Arabia.
