The Rhenus Group Marks 60 Years in Spain, Celebrating Continuous Growth and Future Expansion

The year 2024 will mark a new milestone in the history of the Rhenus Group with the celebration of the 60th anniversary of the start of its activities in the Spanish market, the origins of which go back to 1964. Since then, Rhenus has experienced continuous growth and is now one of the main leaders in the logistics sector in Spain. The company plans to reinforce this position through a strategy of organic expansion and acquisitions.

The Spanish Rhenus headquarters is in Barcelona. The company has established 44 branches over the past 60 years to create a strong presence in the main logistics hubs of the peninsula, as well as in the Canary and Balearic Islands. These facilities are complemented by a dense network of road, sea and air transport, and a complete portfolio of solutions for warehousing, last-mile delivery, and high-value-added customs and logistics services for industry and commerce.

The state dimension in Spain is reinforced by the global reach of the Rhenus Group, a family-owned company founded in Germany in 1912 that has become one of the leading international logistics specialists. Today, the group employs 39,000 people in 1,120 locations and has an annual turnover of 8.6 billion euros.

"Celebrating our 60th anniversary in Spain is a true testament to our history of growth. We could not be prouder of our team and how they are living our family values and have brought them to others in the region. Our colleagues in Spain have been shaping the future of Rhenus for 60 years now. And while their growth is very impressive, I am convinced this is just the beginning," explains Tobias Bartz, CEO and Chairman of the Rhenus Group.

One goal: to accelerate the Rhenus market leadership in Spain

The 60th anniversary is being celebrated in the context of the company's expansion in Spain. This is in line with the group's global growth strategy of expanding its activities into new markets and business segments to offer its customers an increasingly comprehensive and global range of logistics services.

We will continue to accelerate on this journey with acquisitions that expand our positioning in key business segments and regions to further strengthen the Rhenus brand nationally and globally," says Francisco Ocón, Managing Director of Rhenus Air & Ocean Spain.

"During these 60 years, we have become the logistics partner of numerous Spanish companies, and we desire to continue to grow with them. We remain committed to excellence in logistics, and it is this commitment that drives us to look to the future. Our aim is not only to maintain our leadership in the sector but also to be at the forefront of introducing efficient, innovative, sustainable and people-driven solutions to meet our customers' needs in the future," says Andreu Gutiérrez, Country Sales Director Road of Rhenus Logistics in Spain.
