Aramex Mobile app offers the users numerous features that make the process of sending, tracking, and delivering shipments an easy and enjoyable experience.

The recently upgraded version of the app allows users to schedule their package delivery time, select pick-up or delivery locations, and activate related notifications. Huawei users now have more options to choose from in terms of shipping and delivery.
Additionally, Aramex Mobile is backed by an AI-enabled chatbot, making it one of the region's first innovative and interactive communication channel to be powered by artificial intelligence. Through the chatbot, users can track and identify the location of their shipments, receive notifications on their status, arrange delivery times, share locations and find the nearest Aramex center or location to pick up or deliver parcels. In terms of payment options, the app provides a secure and simple tool that shows a full breakdown of the total charges, including delivery fees and customs duties.
