Established on 13th November 1912 as Rhenus Transport GmbH, the Rhenus Group has become a global logistics service provider with 26,000 employees and an annual turnover of €4.6 billion.
Rhenus has more than 500 subsidiaries in Europe and Asia and operates at other locations through the support of partners, correspondents and agents. Its Contract Logistics, Freight Logistics, Port Logistics and Public Transport Divisions manage complex supply chains and provide innovative valueadded services. The Rhenus Group has just opened its new Hamburg-Harburg multi-user distribution center, which currently offers 31,000 square meters of covered storage space.
In the application-driven field of contract and freight logistics, the security and efficiency of IT assets are high priority for organisations. A large quantity of information, partly in real-time, is needed to be able to plan and enable logistics services that satisfy customer needs. If logistical information is lacking for Rhenus Transport’s customers, it is impossible for them to load aircraft, vessels and trucks or to book orders, resulting in expensive down times.
