India-based online logistics marketplace Zipaworld has partnered with Asyad Group for expanding its business in Oman and the GCC region.
Under the tie-up, the two companies will launch a pilot project with Asyad Express for express courier services and door-to-door shipments in India and the GCC region, according to a press statement.
“This strategic association will boost business across the trade lane between India and Oman as well as other GCC countries besides helping the two partners reach out to the world beyond. Further, it will also open up a more economical and cost-effective gateway into the Gulf, Middle East and African ports,” said Ambrish Kumar, founder of Zipaworld.
Nasser al Sharji, acting CEO of Oman Post & ASYAD Express, said, “We are leading the express mail segment and continually working on enhancing our services to meet the needs of our ever-growing customer base. As e-commerce continues to gain momentum, our partnership with Zipaworld represents one of a number of collaborations that are helping us to expand into new markets beyond Oman.”
With Asyad Group deploying the latest technology for encouraging virtual platforms and easing the trade barriers, its association with Zipaworld will enhance and accelerate seamless trade movement between India and Oman, and between India and other GCC countries, the statement said.
The express courier facilitation from India to the GCC countries will be much more economical and transparent as compared to the present market scenario, Zipaworld said.
