Local media reports that Dubai based Aramex has hired more than 1,000 Saudi nationals for the P2P delivery scheme Aramex Fleet.
Launched in 2018, Aramex Fleet aims to offer Saudi nationals employment opportunities in flexible last mile delivery work. They are to be paid on a per-delivery basis.
“Whenever there is a spike in business, instead of recruiting new people and having them on standby, we have a crowdsource model,” Chief Operating Officer Iyad Kama explained.
“People come and subscribe to the model online, put their licence, ID and all the paperwork required, come into classroom training at Aramex and go with a courier on a route.
“From there, they are on standby to start delivering packages. Whenever there is a peak, they notify them.”
