The UAE logistics and transportation company Aramex has posted a 15 per cent increase in its full-year profits for 2014 compared with the previous year.

Profits reached AED318.4m ($86.7m) last year, against AED278m achieved in 2013.

Revenues also increased by 10 per cent on 2013, reaching AED3.65bn in 2014.

The results mark the tenth year of record profits since Aramex listed on the Dubai Financial Market (DFM).

Revenues were boosted by the firm’s expansion beyond the GCC, although the Gulf region remains the largest contributor to revenues.

In 2015, the company anticipates stronger revenues from its freight business given the decline in oil prices and increase in trade.

Aramex is also eying further acquisition opportunities this year, having completed several franchise agreements, joint ventures and acquisitions across Africa, Southeast Asia and Australia in 2014.
