Rhenus has opened its own air and sea freight site at Leipzig/Halle Airport, expanding its network in Eastern and Central Germany.
The branch, which opened on 1 June has a direct link to the Rhenus Group’s international network through the groupage and airfreight gateways in Hilden and Frankfurt/Main.
In Leipzig, Rhenus Air & Ocean will not only handle international air transport shipments but also the import and export customs formalities.
Customers can also book services in the sea freight sector and combined transport operations.
The Leipzig site will focus on connections to the Americas, Asia-Pacific and South Africa.
Stefan Schwind, managing director of Rhenus Air & Ocean Germany says that Leipzig/Halle’s 7% growth in 2018 was a major reason why Rhenus set up operations at the airport.
He says: “Because of its central location, it’s also an ideal addition to our network within Germany. The site is strategically important for us, thanks to the good international connections too.”
