Dear Aramex Customer,

As you are aware, the Government of India has put into effect measures to safeguard the population against the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). These measures include placing nationwide lockdown until 14th April 2020, suspending domestic travel, trains and other public transport and shutting down manufacturing facilities and non-essential retail.

As such, we too have taken the decision to temporarily suspend all our services in India. We will keep a close watch of the situation, and we will stay in close contact with governments and other relevant authorities. We will, of course, continue to keep you well informed of any updates on our operations and the resumption of our services.

While our services are temporarily halted, all shipments that have been already picked up are currently being processed to connect to nearest global hub and onforwarded for delivery, however we expect there will be some delays in the service due to the current situation, which is beyond Aramex’s control.
