November 7, 2019: With the expansion of its warehousing solutions to Asia-Pacific, Rhenus Logistics on Tuesday announced that it now offers end-to-end logistics solutions to India, Greater China, Hong Kong, Philippines, Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia and Vietnam.

The German-headquartered global logistics provider plans to add a new warehouse in every three months and extend its global experience to the region with a portfolio of storage types. The aggressive expansion of Rhenus Logistics Warehousing Solutions to the Asia-pacific was started with the acquisition of Singapore’s Triways Logistics in May and the addition of its largest warehouse in Thailand, a 10,000 square-meter multi-user facility, in June.

"The strategic move to build stronger supply chain capabilities paves the way for Rhenus Logistics as a complete solution provider in Asia, encompassing freight and warehousing services, as well as distribution services. Our warehouses are located in close proximity of connecting airports and ports and supported with our global structure and networks. Our comprehensive road networks in markets such as Greater China, offer added value to customers by offering cost-efficient and reliable transport operations to and from the warehouses --between towns, cities, and countries" said Karl-Heinz Krupp, General Manager of Warehousing Solutions & Domestic Distribution, Rhenus Logistics Greater China.

Rhenus Thailand opened the Bangna-Trad KM.19 warehouse - a 10,000square-meter multi-user facility that covers 11,000 pallet locations, on June 2019, expanding its food cold storage facilities to include alcohol and halal food-grade products.

In Singapore, the acquisition of Triways Logistics, a local player in the warehousing and supply chain industry, in May 2019 added a 10,000square-meter warehouse, expanding its service portfolio in warehousing service and distribution solutions.

Rhenus Philippines added four new warehouses this year, and currently has 13warehouses strategically located islandwide. Rhenus Indonesia is currently finalizing plans to start offering warehousing services.

"Our smart logistics solutions, conceptualized by a dedicated team, have seen good results, such as the self-programme collaborative robot cell in Germany. As our footprint in Asia-Pacific grows, we will work closely with customers to develop customized logistics solutions, powered by technology and our industry expertise," added Thomas Halliday, APAC Warehousing Director - IT.

Warehousing solutions are a central element of its integrated supply chain solutions for the procurement and distribution of goods. The warehouses are designed for multiple and single users and form a comprehensive network in Europe, Asia-Pacific, South Africa and the Americas. Its proprietary Rhenus Warehousing System, customized for the Asia Pacific region is expected to enhance cross-border security with centralized monitoring and control of the processes.

“Rhenus' proprietary Warehouse Management System offers 24/7 real-time stock visibility, supports labour, distributed order and inventory management optimises operations, and can be configured to suit different customers' requirements,” says the release.
