UAE-based logistics services provider Shipa Delivery expands into Oman

June 30, 2019

 Shipa Delivery, a UAE-based leading provider of local and cross-border logistics services in the Middle East, has opened its doors to customers in Oman.

Oman is one of the four new markets targeted by the Shipa Delivery expansion, the others being Kuwait, Bahrain, and Saudi Arabia. The company will provide on-demand, same-day, and next-day deliveries enabled by its innovative technology, according to a press statement.

As elsewhere in the Middle East region, demand is surging in Oman among enterprises and consumers for more reliable, convenient, and affordable deliveries of in-store and online purchases and parcels of all sizes from credit cards to furniture, the company said.

The trend is as Shipa Delivery’s CEO, Borhene Ben Mena, expected when the startup was conceived and began its technology-driven, last-mile delivery operations out of Dubai, with funding and support from Agility, one of the region’s largest logistics providers.

“We designed the Shipa Delivery business specifically for the Middle East market. Our technology, customer service, and understanding of these markets are what set us apart,” Mena said.

With more than 1mn packages already delivered and an established reputation as the region’s most versatile, easy-to-use delivery provider, Shipa Delivery’s entry into Oman should be a welcome arrival for the country’s banks, telecom providers, pharmacies, and etailers, along with other enterprises selling online.
