Rhenus Logistics Italy is expanding its coverage of the Lazio region surrounding the Italian capital of Rome. The new branch office was opened on 12 October and covers 22,000 square metres. The new location enables Rhenus to offer complete, integrated transport solutions for its customers using the company’s international network.
The branch office and the warehouse of Rhenus Logistics are situated at the logistics park in Riano, which covers an area of 400,000 square metres.
