LOGISTICS services provider Rhenus Asia-Pacific says it is looking to expand its intra-Asia presence.

This follows the recent opening of an office in New Zealand with a view to boosting its business in the Oceania region.

The logistics services provider is also seeking to tap into emerging opportunities such as e-commerce and digital technologies.

Rhenus Asia-Pacific Far East Asia chief executive Jan Harnisch said with a presence in almost every part of the Asia Pacific, Rhenus had an extensive portfolio of services, products and solutions.

“Our intra-Asia trade volume has seen a steady year-on-year growth of 20-30% for the past three years and we aim to double up the revenue by 2020,” Mr Harnisch said.

“We continue to deliver strong air and ocean products, while warehousing, cross-border trucking and rail transportation remain increasingly important in the region. We are also looking to grow the e-commerce business for South-east Asia and Greater China, among others.


Mr Harnisch said Rhenus had seen the expansion of trade lanes within Asia to Oceania and Europe.

“Rhenus is on track on a long-term growth strategy to establish strong presence on all continents,” he said.

“The extension of our presence in the South East Asian markets is key, where we leverage the possibilities in cross border trucking.”
