One of Europe’s leading logistics service companies, The Rhenus Group has recently opened their own New Zealand entity, Rhenus Logistics NZ.

Their foray into New Zealand will commence when their first business site opens on August 20th 2018 in the North Island city of Auckland. The new division will offer comprehensive international and domestic logistics services along with a customs consultancy with a key focus on the customer experience providing both 4PL & 5PL solutions.

One-third of New Zealand’s population reside in Auckland, it is the largest city in the country and the Rhenus Group aim to expand and enhance their services throughout the Oceania region as a result of this new branch in New Zealand.

The Rhenus Group CEO for Far East Asia, Jan Harnisch had this to say, “We’ve been investing in the expansion of our network in the Asia-Pacific region for several years. We took over the Australian company O’Brien Logistics about one year ago and integrated it within the Rhenus Group. We’ve also opened many new business sites, for example in South Korea, China, Vietnam, Malaysia, Indonesia and in the Philippines.”

Mark Harrison will be the Managing Director Rhenus Logistics NZ, Mark has over 25 years’ experience in the New Zealand transport sector.

Mr. Harrison gave his thoughts on the new NZ division, “Despite New Zealand’s geographical distance between supply point and customer markets and the challenges this creates from an international logistics perspective, New Zealand remains a leading supplier for both the global dairy and agriculture industries. New Zealand commodities within these industries are seen as premium products, along with its clean, green image.”

He further added, “Supported by our strong global network, we expect to deliver comprehensive and innovative solutions to our customers, enhancing their supply chain’s value through a mutual partnership approach.”

A key focus will be made on the imports from both the Asian and European markets, due to the high demand for products in New Zealand from these regions. Another key market will be the Trans-Tasman market between Australia and New Zealand.
