Aramex Shop and Ship Increases Rates…Again

update: It seems I was mistaken and the last time Aramex did indeed increase shipping prices was June 2008 (thanks for the blog archives!).

It seems Aramex Shop and Ship increases its rates every year. This year, an email sent by Aramex tells me of their 2011 rates. It might not be that much as I looked at how much it was costing now. On the Shop and Ship Rate Calculator, your first half kilo would cost you 39 rials, succeeding half kilos would be charged at 31 rials. With their new 2011 rates, your first half kilo would now be 41 rials with an additional 33 rials for the next half kilo. That’s 2 rials more for this year.

Anybody else have any cheaper options for bringing in goods from the US to Qatar?
