Aramex, a global provider of comprehensive logistics and transportation solutions, is in the process of migrating from on-premise data centers to AWS. Rackspace Technology will be working closely with Aramex on the modernization of the company’s extensive 60+ applications.

Aramex, which moved more than 103 million shipments globally last year, started its cloud journey with the creation of one of the largest data lakes in the Middle East. It also deployed machine learning models in areas of customer experience and last mile innovation.

Through Rackspace Technology’s managed public cloud environment, the Dubai-based organization has already achieved cost savings when scaling. This was crucial during the early months of the Covid-19 pandemic where it saw around 30-40% growth in e-commerce volumes. Working with Rackspace Technology, Aramex is also provided with expert cloud security and compliance services. Rackspace Technology also provides them the ability to leverage data analytics, ultimately enabling it to become cloud native.
