The Ajman Transport Authority has approved standards for licencing the business of delivery companies in order to regulate the transportation process and governance.
The requirements include training drivers and riders and licencing vehicles and motorcycles, in addition to the requirements for delivery boxes.
Omar Mohamed Lootah, Director-General, Ajman Transport Authority, said among the requirements is that the driver or rider should be free from diseases that hinder the performance of his job and should pass a mental health test.
He stressed that companies engaged in delivery services should have an adequate and approved office, vehicles, and parking commensurate with the nature of their business.
Also, sticking or hanging promotional materials on the body of the vehicle without obtaining the authority’s approval is not allowed.
The Director General of the authority mentioned that there are also requirements for the delivery box that is used in the delivery process, stating that the bike’s delivery box size should not exceed 50cm by 50cm, that all sides of the box must be illuminated with lights, and the necessity of placing a red and white reflective sticker on all sides of the box.
