The logistics specialist, Rhenus Logistics, has set the foundation to serve the growing Canadian onshore and offshore markets. The company has launched two new business sites in Halifax and St. John’s focusing on project logistics primarily on the emerging renewable energy sector in Newfoundland. 

The eastern Canadian provinces of Newfoundland and Nova Scotia on the Atlantic coast are home to a significant amount of oil, gas, and offshore companies, Rhenus Logistics noted in its statement. Some of the most important industrial corporations have launched business operations in this traditional market region, including long-established partners of Rhenus. With two business sites in Halifax and St. John’s, Rhenus will now offer its services in the epicenter of project logistics and offshore markets in the Canadian Atlantic area.

Time is right for Rhenus Logistics

Canadian government and offshore industry have devised plans that encourage the expansion of renewable energy sources.

The fundamental change in thinking away from fossil fuels towards sustainable energy sources creates enormous potential for the Rhenus Group, which specialises in project logistics, the statement reads.

“At Rhenus, we have years of offshore industry experience in the Middle East and Europe, and we are now extending our knowledge and solutions to the Canadian Atlantic region,” said Jeffery Haley, Director of Global Projects at Rhenus Logistics Canada. “Canada is approving the development and growth of offshore projects, and Rhenus can be a part of expanding renewable energy sources with the help of our services and team of experts.”

Expansion in sights

Rhenus noted the company already has expertise in the field of sustainability, and the company is involved in German offshore projects in the North Sea, that are at the forefront of german energy revolution. In addition to its service operations related to onshore, offshore, project logistics and transportation in eastern Canada, Rhenus Logisitics also aims to expand its portfolio with customs clearance.

Traditional sectors such as fish farming and agriculture are also very promising industrial segments for Rhenus in Newfoundland, the compny said.

Rhenus Canada currently operates in Montreal, Toronto, and Vancouver, providing logistics solutions via air, road, ocean, and rail for various industries such as e-commerce, fashion, retail, automotive, and more. The Rhenus Canada service portfolio also includes warehouse fulfillment and distribution, customs clearance, and project logistics.
