Rhenus expands automotive logistics offering

Logistics specialist, the Rhenus Group, has invested in its automotive offering, with the launch of its Full Vehicle Logistics department in the UK to further meet the needs of its automotive customers worldwide.

The Rhenus Group, which has a longstanding history working across the automotive sector, has expanded its in-house capabilities to offer customers a full range of logistics services under one provider.

To date, Rhenus UK has largely supported the automotive sector with the transportation of vehicle parts and sub-assembly projects, with the support of its automotive competence centres across Europe. With the introduction of Full Vehicle Logistics, it has increased its capabilities to work on additional specialist automotive movements, from transporting one-of-a-kind prototypes through to managing full customs clearance for individual vehicle shipments across the globe.

The latest shipment from the Rhenus Full Vehicle Logistics team was a Bugatti Divo, valued at £5m and one of only 40 models produced.The latest shipment from the Rhenus Full Vehicle Logistics team was a Bugatti Divo, valued at £5m and one of only 40 models produced.

The Full Vehicle Logistics team focuses on servicing three key customer groups - individuals, dealerships and OEMs.

Spencer Davern, Air & Ocean director at Rhenus UK, commented: “The launch of Full Vehicle Logistics allows Rhenus to further expand its automotive offering and focus on the movement of complete cars via air, ocean or road. The fact we have invested in a new department during these unprecedented times is a testament to our dedication to the automotive sector. As we head towards the completion of Brexit, it is going to be more beneficial than ever for businesses to keep their transportation needs under one roof, with a provider that can deliver complete support from start to finish, including customs clearance.

“I’m proud to be working with such a talented team and look forward to completing many more high security, high profile and high value movements.”
