For Rhenus, one of the leading international logistics service providers, this deal marks the entrance into the Vietnamese contract logistics market and provides an opportunity to showcase its extensive logistics experience and best practices in the local environment. Over the next three years, Rhenus will invest in its nationwide warehousing and distribution functions.
ConCung and Rhenus also place a high focus on environmental friendliness by optimizing truck utilizations and paperless operational processes. Operating more than 250 outlets across the country, ConCung is Vietnam’s largest retail chain for mother and baby products. Fuelled by an innovative business model and a relentless customer focus, ConCung is expanding rapidly in every area of Vietnam.
In order to service its new client, Rhenus Logistics Vietnam inaugurated a new multi-user hub in the Binh Duong province on 2 April. The opening celebration was attended by Rhenus Logistics Vietnam’s board of directors, ConCung’s executive committee and the project team.
The facility offers 4,000 square metres of dedicated warehouse space. A team of more than 60 staff will operate a 24/7 service to receive, handle, store, order pick and dispatch ConCung’s products. In addition, Rhenus staff will provide quality control monitoring on selected products, special handling and labelling, as well as providing fulfilment for the company's e-commerce business.
“Our strategy is to apply our global contract logistics expertise and knowledge to this new geography and to expand our presence in the contract logistics market in Vietnam and across Southeast Asia. Our site in Binh Duong has the capacity to expand as we add new customers to our portfolio,” says Ricardo Batista, Rhenus Logistics Vietnam’s General Manager for Warehousing and Domestic Distribution.
Carsten Schwenke, Managing Director of Rhenus Logistics Vietnam, adds: "We are very proud that an important company such as ConCung has chosen Rhenus to be their trusted logistics service provider. This deal is a major breakthrough for Rhenus’ contract logistics business in Vietnam and the perfect opportunity for us to invest in an exciting local market.”
Tuan Tran, Supply Chain Director of ConCung Corporation, looks forward to working with Rhenus Logistics: “With a complex supply chain operation concept and an ambitious business expansion plan in the coming years, ConCung will need a logistics partner that can offer advanced solutions as well as flexibility. We believe that Rhenus Logistics Vietnam with their strong leadership, customer centric mind-set and well-defined strategy will bring much more values than that.”
