Rhenus Strengthens its Presence in Indonesia
After opening an office in the port city of Semarang in February this year, the Rhenus Group has expanded its activities again in Southeast Asia. The Group plans to launch services at another business site in Surabaya, the country’s second-largest city, at the beginning of August. The Rhenus national company in Indonesia has now been certified by IATA since the end of May as well.
As a result, Rhenus will have business operations at four sites in Indonesia in the future – two locations in Jakarta and one office each in Semarang and Surabaya. The company will offer air and sea freight services, customs clearance and trucking from the new representative offices in Semarang and Surabaya.
“Semarang and Surabaya are attractive business sites for us, thanks to their location and their size. We’re increasing our clout in Southeast Asia within the network of our other Asian national companies,” says Remo Husser, Managing Director of Rhenus Logistics Indonesia. “The demand for efficient and reliable logistics services is high. The number of consignments that we’re handling in Semarang is increasing all the time and we’ve been able to register strong growth in Jakarta too.”
Alongside international transport operations between Asia and Europe, Australia and the USA, Rhenus in Indonesia also organizes services within Asia, like between Indonesia and Thailand or the Philippines.
