Local and global flows of goods form the core business of our innovative transport logistics operations. Benefit from our precise planning in using the relevant modes of transport and make use of our intermediate storage space. Our transport logistics operations offer additional attractive services too.
The best consumer item is useless if it does not reach the shops or cannot be supplied to consumers. The latest manufacturing plant for industrial goods remains an unprofitable investment if the supplies of raw materials and semi-finished products are not handled in an effective way.
The movement of goods either locally or globally is the dominant feature of the modern business world; production processes have diversified enormously, particularly in terms of where they take place. Different types of fruit and vegetables, spices, mineral deposits and animal products, which are only found in particular regions on the planet, were among the first items that required international transport services. The globalised division of labour is now the rule rather than the exception and calls for innovative transport logistics services. But even the production and delivery of local products demand precise planning so that the relevant means of transport and intermediate storage facilities can be used in the correct way.
We at the Rhenus Group use our services and own assets to cope with the enormous challenge of linking up various staging posts in a transport chain quickly and reliably on a daily basis. We make full use of all the opportunities available to global transport companies or those with modern organisational structures on behalf of our customers and use overland, sea, rail and air services. We seek to reduce costs and transport times with our inter-modal approach and it plays a significant role in our operations. We also make every effort to use resources in a sustainable manner in our transport logistics business.
Based on our all-round view, transport logistics does not end with loading or unloading the mode of transport and shipping the goods from A to B. We offer you a comprehensive range of services in all matters related to sourcing, production and distribution. This not only applies to the B2B field, but also when making deliveries to final customers. Our special networks, Rhenus Home Delivery, Rhenus Midi Data and Rhenus eonova, operate at the crossover point between classic transport logistics and extensive value-added services, alongside our standard network.
Our IT systems embrace the latest technology and are continually being improved so that we can manage the movement of goods precisely and shape these processes in a transparent way for all those involved. The ability to track consignments and link our programmes with your ERP software help to ensure a rapid exchange of information.
