Rhenus unveils new international logistics facility

The Rhenus Group has expanded its logistics services in the Asia-Pacific region, with a newly-built warehouse in Gurugram, India. The state-of-the-art 32,500 sq m facility is the latest addition to Rhenus’ global logistics operations.

The Gurugram logistics centre features 30,000 pallet spaces, 19 loading gates and 24-hour security protection. Sustainability has been prioritised throughout, with solar PV panels installed on the roof and water recycling technology integrated within the facility’s design.

The new Gurugram location serves customers from the consumer, industrial goods, automotive, mechanical engineering and chemical sectors, among others. The warehouse has good transport links to the Jaipur Highway, the Kundli-Nabesar-Palwal Expressway and the Delhi-Mumbai Corridor to Delhi and other parts of northern India.

“Our flagship warehouse is raising the bar even higher in terms of quality, sustainability and safety. It is our goal, as a service provider, to be the first choice for integrated logistics solutions and scalable storage across India. Well-trained staff, standardised systems and modern processes are our advantage,” says Vivek Arya, managing director of Rhenus Logistics India.

The new flagship warehouse is the 69th Rhenus branch in India. The total storage capacity Rhenus operates across the country has thus increased to more than 175,000 square meters across 30 logistics centres.

“India is one of our key markets for our growth plans for the  APAC region. Our high quality standards and decades of experience enable us to provide professional support to customers along the entire logistics chain,” says Jan Harnisch, global COO Rhenus Air & Ocean.
