Fastway Couriers is undergoing an extensive rebrand across Australia, expected to be completed by mid-2020. This follows its acquisition by global transportation and technology company, Aramex in 2016 in a deal valued at $117 million.

Aramex Australia CEO, Peter Lipinski said the company was excited to be celebrating the rebrand with customers, including freshly painted delivery vans and couriers dressed in red, ahead of the busy Christmas period.

“Fastway vans always looked great, but we have had a fantastic response to the new red Aramex vans and uniforms look.

“With e-commerce continuing to boom in Australia, we are expecting to see at least a 30% increase in deliveries this festive season. It’s going to be our busiest Christmas yet, so we’ve been investing in extra resources and services to ensure customers across Australia are provided with the most convenient Christmas delivery solutions.”

With the Parcel Connect service, customers will be able to drop off and collect their parcels at a time that suits them using one of over 800 local Parcel Connect locations across Australia.

“Aramex provides small businesses with a delivery partner that can cope with the demands of peak season. Our customers get to take advantage of our global network but without having to compromise on excellent local customer service.

“We are still local franchisees, in local regions, and this is very important to us as local customer service is in our DNA but as part of Aramex, we have access to a range of benefits and opportunities to capture more of the growing global ecommerce market.”

Aramex is present in over 65 countries and transports nearly 70 million parcels globally each year.
