element of its integrated supply chain solutions for the procurement and
distribution of goods. The warehouses are designed for multiple and single

and the Americas.
In addition to
technology-driven innovations implemented in Europe, Rhenus Logistics has

Latest Development of Rhenus APAC Warehousing
Following the recent acquisition of a logistics
company in Singapore and the addition of its largest warehouse in Thailand, Rhenus
Logistics now offers end-to-end logistic solutions in Asia-Pacific for Greater China,
Hong Kong, India, Philippines, Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia and Vietnam. The
company plans to expand steadily with an average of a new warehouse added every
3 months, extending its global experience to the region with a comprehensive
portfolio of storage types.
Thailand opened the Bangna-Trad KM.19 warehouse - a 10,000 square-meter
multi-user facility that covers 11,000 pallet locations, on June 2019 in
Thailand, 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 adds a 10,000 square-meter warehouse, expanding its service portfolio in
warehousing service and distribution solutions. Rhenus Philippines similarly
added four new warehouses this year, and currently has 13 warehouses strategically
located islandwide. Rhenus Indonesia is currently finalizing plans to start offering
warehousing services, and more details will be provided closer to date.
warehousing solutions will integrate seamlessly with Rhenus' domestic
distribution services, which includes domestic transport and road freight, and
reduces potential security risk and damage for cross-border deliveries. Please
