Rhenus moves its full vehicle logistics operation into top gear

The majority of the shipments by Rhenus FVL over its first six months of operations have concerned the export of new or classic cars from the UK to either the Far East or mainland Europe.

Spencer Davern, Air & Ocean director at Rhenus UK, commented: Despite the headwinds of the COVID-19 pandemic, the global recession and now Brexit, we’ve seen strong demand for our new specialist service. Our proven capability within the automotive sector, coupled with our focus on quality and communication at all stages has evidently hit the right mark with discerning supercar and classic car owners.”

Spencer added: “To lessen the impact of Brexit on the automotive industry, the Rhenus joint-venture, Cuxport, located in Northern Germany’s Cuxhaven, has implemented optimised customs processes, leading to a significant increase in EU/UK-vehicles being handled through the port. This increase has since produced an extended, now daily shipping schedule between Immingham and Cuxhaven for European markets and has paved the way for a significant business award.”
