In recent weeks, the Chinese online retail giant AliExpress has established warehouses in Israel in Airport City near Ben-Gurion International Airport.

AliBuy website manager Yaniv Porat told Globes, “It is already happening today. There has been a pilot project in recent weeks, and it is happening on a very small scale. Israel is an important market for them, and they have been examining this for over two years.”

Porat does not work for AliExpress though markets its products and receives fees from the company.

Customers can order items already in Israel’s warehouses online, which will shorten delivery wait times and lower costs. Currently, AliExpress is preparing to increase operations and broaden the selection of goods stored in Israel.

As Porat explains, “I am not an employee of AliExpress. I work with them and receive information from them. I know they have made this move in many countries like France, Russia, the United States and more.”
