Rhenus not only offers international transport services at its new branches, but can also handle all the import and export customs formalities. Customers are also able to make use of combined services in the air and sea freight sectors.
“The German market is strategically important for us. Industry and commerce in the form of the automotive sector and the chemical industry, for example, are very strong here. Germany not only has a central geographical location in Europe, but is an attractive business proposition with its good infrastructure and international trading contacts,” said Tobias Bartz, a Member of the Rhenus Board.
About 3.8 million people live in the Hanover/Braunschweig/Göttingen/Wolfsburg urban region. The services sector and manufacturing industry are particularly important there. The Rhine/Ruhr urban region, one of the largest in Europe, has a population of more than 10 million. Both large corporations and medium-sized enterprises have their base there.
Rhenus Air & Ocean currently operates 13 business sites in Germany and is planning to continue its growth course in the country in future too. One special focus at Rhenus Air & Ocean n Germany is on routes to America and Asia. The most important hubs are the two gateways at Hilden and Frankfurt, which will support the two new business sites. Alongside Hanover and Dortmund, there are other branches at Düsseldorf, Hamburg, Leipzig, Mannheim, Munich, Nuremberg, Stuttgart, Villingen-Schwenningen and Weil am Rhein.
