Rhenus Group will add new business sites across a number of regions of the world including another consolidation point for airfreight customers at Frankfurt Airport.
It has already opened six new offices, two in the Philippines in Subic and Clark, one in South Korea in Busan, one in the Indonesian city of Semarang, Rayong in Thailand and Singapore.
Rhenus plans business sites in China, Vietnam, Malaysia, Indonesia and the Philippines, and board member Tobias Bartz says: “We’re involved in a long-term growth course. We’re now continuing this process with our new business sites.”
The logistics service provider is planning to consolidate its air, sea and overland services this year and offer new, routes, and it says cross-border trucking will become increasingly important.
Bartz adds Asia is not the only area of interest, saying: “Germany, France, Scandinavia, Eastern Europe and South and Central America are also interesting markets for us.”
The company says connecting air and sea freight sites more closely with Rhenus overland traffic network, and it will open another consolidation point for airfreight consignments at Frankfurt Airport during the year.
Rhenus Air started offering joint customer solutions involving different modes of transport in conjunction with Rhenus Intermodal Systems since April.
