Freight forwarding from the port

Rhenus offers a range of operations at ports of transshipment, departure and destination. These include transit, import and export formalities, control of cargo handling operations and documentation flow as well as pre- and on-carriage by road or rail.




Based on your requirements and the point of customs clearance, we choose the best shipping line and terminal of arrival or departure. After your cargo has been brought to the port by sea (import) or road (export), we take care of all local operations and arrange the further shipment on the agreed delivery date (import) or sailing date (export). For shipments through the port of St. Petersburg, we can use our own vehicle fleet. In other ports, we are working with preferred and verified road transport companies.



We can organise the dispatch of your cargo by rail to and from the port of entry or exit. This solution is recommended and more cost-effective for deliveries to remote destinations in Central Asia. For larger volumes, we can organise block train solutions. We have direct access to local railway authorities and operators to control tariffs and manage our own as well as a rented wagon fleet.
