Top courier firm slapped with ban

18 March 2014, 08:34Henry Ifeanyi

Lagos - The Nigeria Postal Service (NIOST) has placed an indefinite ban on the operations of Aramex International LLC, a renowned courier company, over alleged unethical practices.

The Courier Regulatory Department (CRD) of NIPOST has subsequently warned individuals, companies and other courier companies from having any dealings with the firm.

Head of CRD, Dr Simon Emeje, said the ban became imperative as a result of incessant reports of unethical practices been carried out by Aramex.

The allegations against the firm according to Emeje include breaches of agreement, non-payment of cost of clearance and delivery of shipments, transacting courier business with other companies without recourse to contractual agreement, despite the fact that the franchise agreement is exclusive and non-transferable, among others.

Emeje warned operators to desist from undertaking courier business either directly or indirectly through any courier company registered with NIPOST in Nigeria.

He said Aramex transacted courier business outside Nigeria and had entered into a franchise agreement with some registered courier companies in Nigeria at different times.

“Consequently, any courier company licensed by NIPOST that enters into a business agreement or transacts courier business with Aramex International LLC Limited will lose its licence.  Aramex has, therefore, been placed under surveillance and you are required to report to the CRD if you notice any courier business undertaken by Aramex for our further action,” he warned.

Emeje pleaded with operators to comply and cooperate with it to make the Nigerian courier industry safe and healthy for all the operators and prospective investors of integrity.
