Rhenus is also proud to introduce their very own building, Rhenus Tower, located at the centre of the logistics hub in Mumbai-Andheri.

The announcement about the expansion of Rhenus warehousing facilities in India to up to 2.4 million square feet follows a period of sustained growth for Rhenus. Currently, Rhenus India has 31 fully compliant and certified warehouses strategically located across India with more than 2.4 million sq ft of warehousing space, including both dedicated and multi-user facilities. The new storage solutions include a heavy-duty selective pallet racking system for customised storage, shelving systems for smaller / spare parts, an automated vertical lean storage system for the safe and optimised storage of products as well as temperature-controlled / cold-room storage facilities.
