Egypt and Jordan sign deal for online shopping from US, UK, China
Egypt and Jordan signed on Sunday an e-commerce deal to allow clients in Jordan to shop from the United States, the United Kingdom, and China through a logistic assembly centre in Cairo.
All shipments coming from the three nations will be shipped to Egypt Post’s logistic centre at Cairo International Airport before being sent to Jordan.
The move is aimed at reducing shipping costs and providing better services for online Jordanian shoppers, head of Egypt Post Essam Al-Sagheer said.
The agreement also includes offering a real-time money transfer service for Egyptians working in Jordan, allowing them to send remittance to their families in Egypt through more than 4,000 post offices across the country, he added.
