Rhenus expands its presence in Germany


The Rhenus Group has expanded its freight forwarding network in Germany by opening two new Air & Ocean offices in Hanover and Dortmund. The new facilities are designed to target customers in Hanover/Braunschweig/Göttingen/Wolfsburg and Rhine/Ruhr urban regions.

Rhenus Air & Ocean currently operates 13 business sites in Germany and has plans for further expansion. A particular focus at Rhenus Air & Ocean is the routes that links Germany to America and Asia. Alongside Hanover and Dortmund, there are other branches at Hilden, Frankfurt, Düsseldorf, Hamburg, Leipzig, Mannheim, Munich, Nuremberg, Stuttgart, Villingen-Schwenningen and Weil am Rhein.

Rhenus will offer international transport services at its new branches, in addition to value-added services, including all import and export customs formalities.

The Hanover/Braunschweig/Göttingen/Wolfsburg urban region hosts around 3.8m consumers, with a strong services and manufacturing industry. Similarly, the Rhine/Ruhr urban region is one of the most developed areas in Germany, being a desirable base-location for large corporations and medium-sized enterprises.

“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.
