AJEX Logistics Services, a specialist in express distribution and shipping solutions based in the Middle East, is collaborating with the Africa Union Trading and Africa Union Aviation, subsidiaries of Africa Union Holdings.

The agreement was signed at the Saudi Trade Attaché’s office in Sandton, Johannesburg.

This partnership supports the strategic expansion goals of both companies: Africa Union Holdings aims to extend its presence across the GCC, while AJEX plans to expand its footprint across Sub-Saharan Africa.

According to the agreement, both parties will work together to streamline operations and maximise efficiencies in shipping, airfreight, trucking, rail freight, and last-mile delivery. As part of this framework, Africa Union Holdings Group will manage all AJEX cargo destined for Africa during the final leg of delivery. Conversely, AJEX will handle all Africa Union Holdings Group cargo destined for the Middle East during the final leg.

“This partnership between AJEX Logistics Services and Africa Union Holdings Group comes at a pivotal time when trade relations between Africa and the Middle East are poised for significant growth. With both regions seeking to diversify economic partnerships and reduce dependency on traditional trade corridors, this collaboration is a forward-looking initiative that aligns with the broader goals of increasing trade volumes and enhancing economic cooperation,” Mohammed AlBayati, Group CEO, AJEX Logistics Services.

“By leveraging each other’s strengths, AJEX and Africa Union Holdings are well-positioned to capitalise on emerging opportunities in sectors such as technology, agriculture, healthcare and energy, thereby contributing to the economic prosperity of both regions,” he added.

“We are thrilled to embark on this partnership with AJEX Logistics Services, marking a new chapter in our journey towards building stronger trade and logistics ties between Africa and the Middle East. This collaboration is a testament to our commitment to enhancing our service offerings and expanding our reach, ultimately facilitating smoother, more efficient trade flows that benefit businesses and consumers alike,” said James Ndambo, CEO of Africa Union Holding.
