The Rhenus Group is expanding its logistics centre in Meerane, Saxony, Germany, with a new 20,000 sq m assembly and storage hall. As of summer 2018, Rhenus will have a total of 45,000 sq m of logistics space available for its customers in Meerane. The location is located in the immediate vicinity of the east-west bypass on Autobahn 4.
In Meerane, Rhenus mainly acts as a partner for automotive suppliers as well as for the retail sector and the growing online markets. In addition to usual warehouse logistics services, the logistics centre also provides value-added services such as supply and disposal for plants, picking, quality checks, return processing, sequencing, packaging and customs handling.
An additional 35,500 palette storage spaces will be available in the new warehouse from the middle of next year. The new building can also store up to 20,000 tonnes of water hazard class 3 hazardous materials.
Meerane is situated in the triangle between Poland, the Czech Republic and Germany as well as on the border between Saxony and Thuringia. Rhenus has been represented here since 2010, taking advantage of the proximity to the engineering and automotive supplies sectors.
