We deploy our Rhenus ships for you on all navigable waterways in Europe. Every year, we transport up to 30 million tonnes of bulk goods from all relevant goods groups, bulk general cargo, e.g. steel products, and containers as well as installations.
To this end, we have an extensive network of branches along the most important waterways and hubs at our disposal.
In addition, our bunker and bilge oil boats work the European inland waterways.
The Rhenus Group and its inland waterway vessels support many sectors of European industry by transporting a wide variety of starting materials and raw materials. These include agricultural products, building materials, aggregates, energy sources, ores, etc.
We handle the transport of the most diversified types of general cargo for our customers. For example, we transport products from the steel industry, large and heavy construction parts and all break bulk cargo.
GMP+ (good manufacturing practice) certification has established itself as a major standard for the transport of agricultural products in recent years. Our inland waterway fleet is equipped with the necessary certificates, which attest to its being a reliable logistics partner for the agricultural industry across national borders.
Transporting waste demands compliance with a large number of legal requirements. The Rhenus fleet of inland waterway vessels has ships that meet all the necessary European requirements, making it possible for us to transport waste and other hazardous materials for you. These include materials such as waste wood, glass, contaminated soil and industrial slag in various volumes.
Eight of the company’s own bilge oil boats are used to collect oil and greasy ship operating waste, e.g. empty oil containers or oily cleaning rags, from inland waterway vessels. Their primary task is the collection and subsequent professional disposal of bilge oil. Our ships are able to treat the bilge water while still on the waterway. The separated waste oil is collected in our own systems and fed into the economic cycle in processed form.
With eight bunker boats, we also supply goods and passenger shipping on all European waterways with marine diesel, lubricants, drinking water and other required products.
This specialised vessel is responsible for the disposal of waste oil, solid waste and oil-water mixtures.
Our bunker boats, like the Rheintank 2, supply inland vessels with fuel and drinking water.
Containers can be transported efficiently and in an environmentally friendly way on inland waterway vessels in the European river network.
Tourist boats are also part of the Rhenus fleet.
Push-pull units enable the transport of large quantities of goods by push boat and push barge.
