Rhenus Air & Ocean moves its Bilbao offices to Torre Iberdrola

Rhenus Air & Ocean, the Rhenus Group division specialising in air and ocean transport solutions, has moved its Bilbao offices this June to Torre Iberdrola, one of the most emblematic buildings in the Biscayan capital. The new facility, based in the city's principal business hub, reinforces the Rhenus Group's position in the Basque Country.

"It is a privilege to settle in a symbol such as Torre Iberdrola, which is the main business hub of Bilbao," points out Roberto Rodrigo, Branch Manager, who highlights the excellent connection to the airport – only 15 minutes away – and the direct access by road via the BI-631 and BI-3704.

"We are opening qualified, modern and technological offices. They are also a national reference in sustainability, so it is the ideal place to continue being a benchmark in the logistics sector and providing the best service to our customers and suppliers," assures the Rhenus Air & Ocean Branch Manager in Bilbao.

The new Bilbao office allows Rhenus to strengthen its presence in the Basque Country, a key market for the group. In this area, the company carried out two operations last year: the expansion of its Irun warehouse, which has a storage space of 12,000 square metres, and the opening of a new logistics centre in Elgóibar by Langarri Logística, a Rhenus-owned company.

The Rhenus Air & Ocean offices in Bilbao specialise in providing solutions for air and ocean freight, a business unit that is showing an excellent development in the opinion of Roberto Rodrigo. "The recovery of Bilbao's port traffic, rising by more than five percent in 2021, and the dynamism of air traffic, especially at the Vitoria Airport, which rose by twelve percent at the end of the year, show the strength of logistics activities in Bilbao and the Basque Country," says the Bilbao Branch Manager.

Rhenus Air & Ocean counts branches in Barcelona, Gijón, Madrid, Oporto, Sevilla, Valencia and Vigo. The structure of Rhenus in Spain includes more than 20 Rhenus Group facilities in Spain and Portugal, its logistics network with 160,000 square metres of warehouse space and a team of more than 1,000 professionals.
