Gebrüder Weiss incorporates Rhenus Bulgaria into network

Gebrüder Weiss and Global Freight System (GFS) have set up the joint venture “Gebrüder Weiss Express China”, specialising in parcel transports between China and Europe.

Gebrüder Weiss has announced it has finished incorporating the operations of Rhenus Bulgaria into its network. As a result, four new locations have been added to the Gebrüder Weiss national subsidiary in Bulgaria – in Burgas, Svilengrad, Varna and Plovdiv.

Staff members from Rhenus’ Sofia site are relocating to the Gebrüder Weiss national headquarters just outside the capital in Musachevo, which is being further expanded. This move marks Rhenus Bulgaria’s withdrawal from the domestic transport market and the transfer of these operations to Gebrüder Weiss.

Country manager at Gebrüder Weiss Bulgaria Marieta Grigorova commented “Our more finely meshed network and new personnel will help us meet our Bulgarian customers’ logistics requirements even more effectively. At the same time, we are expanding our service portfolio in the area of end-consumer deliveries.”

Following the integration of Rhenus Bulgaria, Gebrüder Weiss is now providing Home Delivery options in Bulgaria. This includes the transport of furniture, household appliances and home entertainment products purchased online – to and beyond the customers’ front doors. The two-man teams will also assemble furniture and connect electronic equipment.

According to Gebrüder Weiss, the company ranks among the market leaders in home deliveries in several central and south eastern European countries.
