Shipping has traditionally played a major role at Rhenus. We launched our logistics services on the Rhine – and our company still uses the Latin version of the river’s name. The Port Logistics business area has developed into a specialist for designing, managing and operating international supply chains. This not only applies to inland waterways, but also to short sea traffic and intercontinental maritime services.
Seaports and inland waterway ports serve as important interfaces both for regional and global flows of commodities in terms of transshipment, storage and onward transportation – whether this involves raw materials or finished goods, containers or bulk commodities. In overseas, we can handle your products travelling on the water using our own facilities, particularly our port terminals, and include our partners all round the world; we can also organize the necessary pick-up and final delivery runs beyond the quayside. The Port Logistics business area draws on the current opportunities within the whole company group to do this.
