While the discussion for Aramex has been blogged to death, I am a recent subscriber to the service and am quite excited to recieve my first batch of books from Amazon using the service!

In a related discussion, a colleague at work mentioned that Mailboxes Etc, based in Shuwaikh Free Trade Zone, were providing a similar service to Aramex while charging an exhorbitant KD 125 annually plus KD 2.5 per every half kilo. So far, it seems like its going to fall flat on its face because of the jacked up prices. There actually might be more to the deal, so I am going to go check out MailBoxes ETC when I have a chance.
