Rhenus Logistics enters Brazil
Handle logistics services for sugar and other goods, including coffee, chemicals, tiles, paper and cellulose
The Rhenus Group is continuing to expand its global network by setting up a subsidiary company in Brazil. The new company operating under the name “RMK Logistics do Brasil” will handle logistics services required for sugar and other products.
Because Europe is cutting its exports of sugar in the wake of changes to the law and a cut in subsidies, the Maxx Group of Companies, a member of the Rhenus Group, wanted to provide its customers with a solution to the expanding, but difficult logistics market in Brazil.
Maxx Logistics has jointly set up RMK Logistics do Brasil and its own subsidiary KGSB Logistics in Hamburg. The new subsidiary in Santos will handle logistics services for sugar and other goods, including coffee, chemicals, tiles, paper and cellulose.
The Rhenus Group has annual turnover of €3.0 billion, making it one of the world’s leading logistics contractors. It has over 14,000 employees based at 230 locations worldwide. Rhenus’ Contract Logistics, Freight Logistics, Port Logistics and Public Transport divisions manage complex supply chains and provide value-added services.
