Combining Traditions And The Future

Continuity is one of the five central corporate values for the Rhenus Group. Logistics flows are changing continually and at an even faster pace. Technical innovations create new underlying conditions and options for solutions. The supreme standard for Rhenus not only involves just keeping pace with change, but pressing ahead and helping shape the process. In doing so, the logistics specialist with global operations maintains an important balance between tradition and future viability.

Equally Important

Michael Brockhaus and Michael Viefers are two of the most experienced Members of the Management Board in the Rhenus world. One of them is a third-party logistics specialist, the other one an expert in port logistics and trimodal bulk commodity transport operations. In an interview with Astrid Unverricht, they talk about the way that Rhenus is developing, the process of change, an innovative spirit and the significance of sustainability.

Fast, Safe and Automatic

Rhenus has been operating a unique customs and logistics terminal in Smolensk on the border between Belarus and Russia since 2013. This is not only the base where the “Green Customs Corridor” pilot project is being developed to provide a simplified customs clearance procedure for Russian imports. A customs clearance centre for the chemical industry is also being built there at the moment. Olaf Metzger, Managing Director of OOO Rhenus Freight Logistics, and Carsten Hölzer, Managing Director of Rhenus Freight Sales, talk about electronic customs declarations and the new solution known as “Customs Control Tower”.

Future workplaces

The image of people working at the same desk with a PC tower covered in dust and a pen holder has already been out of fashion for a long time. Co-working spaces, desk islands and laptops already form an integral part of modern workplaces. Employers like the Rhenus Group are taking seriously employees’ needs for improved networking with each other and an environment that is adapted to their tasks. This is why a new building with office space was opened at Holzwickede at the beginning of 2019; it has been developed directly to meet just these requirements.

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.

Szczecin reloaded

Szczecin has repeatedly learned to reinvent itself. The port city in western Poland is planning to implement its latest visions of environmental-friendliness and modernity by 2050. The metropolitan region is mainly attracting online mail order companies at the moment. Rhenus recognised the increasing demand for warehouse centres for the e-commerce sector many years ago and opened a modern warehouse in Goleniów in 2012.

Even More Enjoyable Holidays

Four Seasons, Hyatt, Waldorf Astoria, Marriott, MGM, Wynn: the list of hotels that Rhenus Project Logistics has been able to serve during the last few years is long and illustrious. It is necessary to handle a great deal when constructing new hotels or renovating existing ones so that guests feel at home afterwards. This is a job for Rhenus Project Logistics.

Deus ex machina

Process automation has long since become one of the well-established megatrends in Logistics 4.0. Artificial intelligence, which is becoming increasingly effective, is changing the working world – whether through autonomous vehicles, independently operating production arms or fork-lift trucks that raise pallets in warehouses by themselves. However, automation also causes concerns for employees who wonder whether they are still needed. Despite this, things are very different at Rhenus: employees are the major focus for the company – and how modern technologies can make their work easier so that logistics services are effective.

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.

This is not the first time and it will certainly not be the last time that I write about our major focus on our customers here. It is simply impossible to talk too much about a company’s orientation towards its customers. After all, they are the key element in the success of our daily work and therefore for Rhenus as a whole.

Creating value added for customers means discovering what they need before they recognise it themselves. We therefore provide value added through our communications too by distributing information beyond the normal channels. This includes social networks. Our QR codes give you some idea of this.

Each company, whether it has existed for a long time or is a start-up, needs to tackle the following fundamental questions at least once: “What distinguishes us, who are we and what do we represent?”

We are currently going through the process of change associated with Industry 4.0 – but the next catch-phrase is already following close behind: Mobility 4.0. What does it mean? Industry 4.0 represents automation – that is to say, standardising processes and categorising data. Mobility 4.0 entails significantly greater flexibility, particularly when it comes to mobility for people. That is to say, if services operate according to a set timetable at the moment, they will be organised in line with demand in future.
