Rhenus Logistics opens its own office in Morocco

Press release

The multinational company Rhenus Logistics sets up Rhenus Maroc in the city of Tangier, thus establishing the company on the African continent. The office of Rhenus Logistics in Tangier is the first phase of the company’s development plan in Africa.

As a result of the significant and constant increase in business transactions with Morocco, since 2008, Rhenus Logistics has depended on the Spanish shipping company Rhenus Tetrans, S.L.U. for its logistic services with this country. Thanks to the latter’s excellent location in Northern Morocco, it has been a gateway in and out of the African continent.

Tangier, one of the most important industrial hubs along with Casablanca, has excellent connections and infrastructures which make it the ideal location for Rhenus Logistics to set up its first office on the African continent. With the inauguration of its headquarters in Tangier, the company will be able to offer specialised logistic services in a wide range of sectors such as manufacturing, automotive, technology, textile and the pharmaceutical industries.

In the short term, Rhenus Logistics plans on focusing its efforts on developing and consolidating local and international services by land, air and sea in and out of Morocco. Along this line, Lluis Folch, country manager in Morocco, adds, “In general, Morocco has become a regional leader and Tangier, in particular, has become a corporate hub where many multinational companies have been established for some time, are in the process of establishing or have plans to establish business. Therefore setting up our headquarters in Tangier was logical so we could respond to our customers’ demands”.

Rhenus Logistics offers a wide range of logistic services in and out of Morocco. It has an intermodal transportation service (road-sea) with regular departures to the ports of TangerMed, Casablanca, Agadir and Nador. Door-to-door services all over Morocco are possible thanks to its Ro-Ro services with fixed routes. Rhenus offers consolidated, partial and full shipment services by land, air or sea with transport time that is fully guaranteed for both conventional industrial goods as well as hazardous goods. It also offers transport services for special and oversized cargo.

In terms of logistic services, Rhenus has facilities for handling and storing goods and preparing orders with an automated inventory control system and integral traceability to provide added value in every step of the logistics chain. Within its wide range of services, it also offers the design of transport logistics from origin to destination and the implementation and evaluation of projects in Morocco.

To fulfil the needs of the supply chain, services in Morocco range from release from customs and assessment to document formalities, bonded warehouses and return management. In terms of technology, the customers of Rhenus Logistics can follow shipments online in real time and receive alerts on the departures and arrivals of goods.
