The Rhenus Group has expanded its activities in South-East Asia. After opening an office in the port city of Semarang in February this year, the Group has plans to launch services at another business site in Surabaya, the country’s second-largest city, at the beginning of August. The Rhenus national company in Indonesia has now been certified by IATA since the end of May too.
As a result, Rhenus will have business operations at four sites in Indonesia in
future - at two locations in Jakarta and one office each in Semarang and
Surabaya. The company will offer air and sea freight services, customs clearance
and trucking from the new representative offices in Semarang and Surabaya.
"Semarang and Surabaya are attractive business sites for us, thanks to their
location and their size. We're increasing our clout in South-East Asia within the
network of our other Asian national companies," says Remo Husser, Managing
Director of Rhenus Logistics Indonesia. "The demand for efficient and reliable
logistics services is high. The number of consignments that we're handling in
Semarang is increasing all the time and we've been able to register strong growth
in Jakarta too."
While the automobile, furniture and textile sectors as well as skilled crafts and
trades are strong in Semarang, plastic products, tobacco, furniture and shoes play
an important role in Surabaya.
Alongside international transport operations between Asia and Europe, Australia
and the USA, Rhenus in Indonesia also organises services within Asia - for
example, between Indonesia and Thailand or the Philippines.
The boosting of Rhenus' presence in Indonesia is a clear sign of the logistics
specialist's growth strategy in Asia. The Rhenus Group is planning to open at least
ten branches in the Asia-Pacific region in 2017 alone.
The Rhenus Group is a logistics services provider with global business
operations and annual turnover of EUR 4.8 billion. Rhenus has business
sites at over 580 locations worldwide and employs more than 28,000
people. The Rhenus business areas - Contract Logistics, Freight
Logistics, Port Logistics and Public Transport - manage complex supply
chains and provide a wealth of innovative value-added services.
