Rhenus has already been ensuring for many years that gym80’s final customers in Germany and Switzerland receive the fitness and medical devices that they have ordered on time. Rhenus Sports Tech will now deliver the heavy-duty items of sports equipment to the place where final customers wish to use them anywhere in Europe; they will be positioned and assembled there too. Rhenus will also directly dispose of the packaging. In addition, the technical value-added logistics specialist is providing a web-based consignment tracking system, so that gym80 always knows exactly what is happening to its deliveries across Europe.
“Rhenus Sports Tech is familiar with our business down to the finest detail and offers suitable transport and assembly solutions, not only in the German-speaking world, but beyond too. That’s why Rhenus Sports Tech is the right logistics partner for our expansion across Europe,” says Christian Zietz, the Head of the Order Processing Department at gym80, explaining the enlargement of the company’s business.
Rhenus Sports Tech develops and implements individual logistics concepts for many companies in the fitness and wellness sector. The company not only pre-installs the devices at its own logistics and technical terminals or directly at the installation site, but also handles the transport, positioning and assembly operations.
The Rhenus Group is a leading logistics service provider with global business operations and an annual turnover of EUR 5.5 billion. Rhenus has business sites at 750 locations worldwide and employs 33,000 people. The Rhenus Group provides solutions for a wide variety of different sectors along the complete supply chain; they include multimodal transport operations, warehousing, customs clearance as well as innovative value added services.

The range of products is growing and comprises about 300 items. The medical division now operates under the MED80 brand. Its goal is to make the best equipment items in the world. gym80 now sends ordered goods to Europe, the USA and Asia.
