Rhenus Logistics’ new warehouse, based in Miami, Florida, will serve as its first regional headquarters for the Americas. The new facility currently provides vertical solutions for consumer electronics, industrial telecommunications, high-technology, high-fashion and retail.

The Class A 160,000 square-foot-warehouse is located across from the Miami International Airport and ten miles from the Port of Miami. The new regional headquarters will be functioning as an IATA-accredited air forwarder, licensed non-vessel operating common carrier (NVOCC), customs bonded warehouse, certified cargo screening facility and foreign trade zone (FTZ). The facility also includes an innovative proprietary IT platform and warehouse management system (WMS), 24-hour security, 59 dock doors and one ramp.

 “Our regional headquarters for the Americas will serve both the North and South American continents,” said Jörn Schmersahl, CEO of Rhenus Air & Ocean Americas. “Its location is strategically convenient for our services to expand in the Americas and will create links to other regions such as Europe and Asia. Miami is the gateway to Latin America – our roots here will help us strengthen our global presence within the region and across new verticals.”

The Rhenus Group recently acquired Florida-based high-tech supply chain specialist, freight logistics international, to strengthen the presence of Rhenus in the Americas.
