Rhenus shows its ambitions for Air & Ocean activities in France

The five Rhenus offices specialising in global freight forwarding in France have now joined the Air & Ocean division of the Rhenus Group. Managed by Christophe Barreau, the new French entity has strong ambitions by 2025.

With its first office in Marseille in 2000, the Rhenus Group really started its global freight forwarding activities with the opening of an office in Strasbourg in 2015. Under the impetus of Christophe Barreau, other offices dedicated to overseas transport were created, in Roissy and Rouen in 2017, then in Lyon at the beginning of 2019.

Since the beginning of 2022, these five offices have been grouped together in a company that depends on the Air & Ocean division of the Rhenus group. Like the Italian, Spanish and Portuguese entities, the French company has joined the Southern Europe region of Rhenus Air & Ocean, chaired by Emanuele Orso. The company is AEO, IATA, ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certified. The CEIV Pharma certification is currently being obtained.

"As part of the Rhenus Group's strategy for 2025, we have a strong ambition to grow our turnover and workforce. Over the next three years, we expect to double our business. This will be achieved through the growth of our existing offices and the opening of two new offices in Toulouse and Nantes,” says Christophe Barreau, General Manager of Rhenus Air & Ocean France.
