Staying Cool.

The Rhenus Group has been successfully working for DuPont de Nemours for 20 years. The trust placed in Rhenus by the customer is enormous: in addition to classic overland transport services, Rhenus has also been handling highly sensitive ultra-cold transport operations to several European countries since 2012. Rhenus has to guarantee a cool chain of -55 – -60 degrees Celsius end-to-end.

The Chemistry Is Just Right

Biesterfeld Spezialchemie has a reputation for being one of the leading international distributors of products and solutions in the world of specialty chemicals. These substances are needed for paints and printing inks – but also for adhesives and electronics or even in the fields of foodstuffs, health care and personal care. As the previous warehouse in Hilden had become too small, the company decided in December 2016 to move into business premises in neighbouring Solingen. However, it set very high standards: the company was aiming to do more than just move into a new warehouse. Logistics needs intelligent management to ensure that goods reach the right place at the right time anywhere in the world.

Very close to customers

The leading European logistics fair in Munich is held every two years and is the most important sector event for all who work in the logistics and transport sector. As in previous years, the Rhenus Group was not going to miss the opportunity of attending this mega-event to be there to meet interested parties and customers. The Rhenus Group's core business involves providing professional solutions along the supply chain and keeping customers' requirements firmly in its sights at all times.

Eco-Friendly Transport

There is a great deal of political will, but you will still not actually encounter many electric vehicles on German roads. This is a fact that the vehicle provider, Rhenus Trucking, is aiming to change: the Rhenus subsidiary has been able to gain as its customer the terminal operator, Contargo, which is also focusing on alternative drive systems. Rhenus Trucking purchased six fully electric 40-tonne trucks in the spring. It was a bold decision – no other company in Germany has yet established this kind of e-truck fleet.

“Provide evidence of your creativity and entrepreneurship” – that was the invitation issued to all Rhenus employees during the spring to take part in the Rhevo innovation project. 260 workers from 28 different countries did not need to be told twice and developed ingenious ideas and solutions in order to enable the Rhenus world to move forward with the help of digital technologies. The best projects presented to a jury in July are now set to be implemented. The project was also introduced at the first digital summit organised by the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology.

Entrepreneurial Spirit

Successful companies are often characterised by their “spirit”. This is demonstrated in many different ways, such as a high degree of innovative capacity and the ability to make rapid decisions, a readiness to take responsibility for its own actions or even taking calculable risks – and, not least, by being able to accept mistakes so that it can learn from them for the future.
