“We recorded very strong results over the past three months, and had the highest revenue for the company ever in the third quarter due to growth in most of our business lines. The pandemic contributed to accelerating growth in the e-commerce sector, which is the most important catalyst for the company’s revenue growth.

He added: “The pandemic has led to an increase in operational costs in many of our business lines, including the costs resulting from our investments to expand the scope of delivery services to the final destination. Although we expect the pace of growth of these costs to stabilize during the coming annual quarters, we expect transportation costs to continue rising in the near future.

And he expected that during the upcoming holidays, electronic shoppers will turn to digital channels to buy goods and send gifts, and thus we are likely to witness good demand rates.

“We witnessed an exceptional growth of 35% in the total number of shipments during the third quarter, most of which came from our main markets, including Saudi Arabia and the UAE,” said Othman Al-Jada, the company’s regional chief executive officer in Europe, North America and Asia.
