Reflects growth in the multi-channel trading sector
Rhenus Warehousing Solutions will be offering even greater services in Europe this year by opening four major multi-user logistics centres. The new Frankfurt South logistics centre marks the start of this process; it launched operations in February. Rhenus Warehousing Solutions now provides extensive warehousing and value-added services for regional and international customers at covered storage space measuring 40,000 m2. The Frankfurt hub offers ideal conditions for this because of its central location and excellent network connections.
The centre, which is located at Rodgau Logistics Park, complements the existing facilities offered by Rhenus in the Rhine/Main region because of the huge demand for storage space.
Temperature controlled services are available at the Frankfurt South logistics centre too. The latest technology and optimised processes also enable the Company to cater for sophisticated requirements in the eCommerce sector at the new business site.
The new facility is an important step in expanding the Company’s network of business sites for third-party logistics services in Europe. It expanded services for customers in North Germany at the end of last year by opening a logistics centre in the Greater Hamburg area. The Rhenus Group also expanded its warehousing space at Gretz-Armainvilliers in France to a total figure of 30,000 m2 last year. Since that time, this facility has provided storage space for lubricants.
The Company is planning to open three other logistics centres in addition to Frankfurt South during 2016. New centres are already under construction in Germany (Duisburg), in Poland and in The Netherlands. The expansion of the Rhenus Warehousing Solutions network reflects growth in the multi-channel trading sector and the increase in demand for high-end industrial warehouse logistics projects in Europe.
