Rhenus offers variety. A variety of ways to make your professional mark at a global logistics service provider in any of four fascinating business units. To take charge of turning your ideas into action and systematically developing your strengths. To benefit from the support of even-handed supervisors and over 28,000 friendly colleagues in more than 40 countries. And to achieve a work-life balance that is just right for you. That is how we can help you move your career in the direction you want: toward greater success, satisfaction and job security.
Rhenus maintains a global presence with over 580 locations in more than 40 countries. So it is no wonder that our corporate culture is shaped by remarkable openness and diversity. Plus, the atmosphere here is warm and friendly. We support each other and keep our promises. We approach personal career matters with understanding and immediacy. And we do everything in our power to help our people develop their full potential. How would we describe ourselves? As initiators and emboldeners. As door-openers and companions. Nationality, race, religion, age, gender and physical challenges do not matter-equal opportunity is part of our DNA. What counts is the individual, with his or her own unique abilities, personality and potential for growth.
Getting employees involved and giving them the scope to contribute and make their very own mark-that is typical of Rhenus. Because part of the way to look at the big picture is our belief that people who work for us should feel good about being here.
Logistics is just getting goods from A to B? Far from it: Rhenus offers customers an end-to-end portfolio of solutions for complex logistics chains plus attractive value-added services. We pool our expertise into four business units: Contract Logistics, Freight Logistics, Port Logistics and Public Transport. That opens up a wealth of exciting opportunities and activities for our employees, in business units ranging from High-Tech, Automotive and Air & Ocean to Seaports and Inland Ports. The focus here is on advance planning as well as streamlining and fine-tuning processes and workflows-always with an eye to our customers' specific needs.
Whichever field of activity interests you, you can look forward to working with an impressive network of colleagues and seasoned specialists ready and willing to share with you their in-depth knowledge and invaluable tips-be it in Holzwickede, Barcelona or Hong Kong.
Many customers prefer to leave logistics to the experts so they can concentrate on what they do best. That is where we come in: Rhenus delivers integrated, industry-specific solutions that go far beyond just warehousing and transport. Our services range from packing, repacking, labeling and end-customer services all the way to performing individual assembly steps. A perfect case in point: we manage the regional delivery and assembly of furniture for a major Swedish home furnishings retailer. So at Rhenus, your job might well include bringing a dash more Swedish design into local homes.
Delivering sensitive insulation materials to a construction site? Turbines to Hong Kong? At Rhenus, that is all in a day's work. We handle the worldwide logistics for our customers' freight-expertly, reliably and just in time. It is all made possible thanks to our tightly-knit network of road, rail, sea and air transport options. But that's not all: on request, we also take care of customs formalities and create tailor-made logistics concepts. It is an incredibly dynamic environment shaped by the selective use of smart IT systems-for functions such as automatic shipment tracking-as well as by the many exciting new challenges for you to take on.
A wealth of products get to us or are exported to other countries through ports. Take cars, for example: Rhenus is the experienced partner entrusted with managing processes such as the seamless logistics chain for a major Bavarian carmaker. To make it happen, we draw not only on our own capacities at ports and inland terminals but also on a state-of-the-art transport network. Above that, we rank among the leaders in coal logistics, moving millions of tons of coke and coal each year and providing customers-mainly power plants-with end-to-end service packages. This includes transshipment and warehousing at seaports, transport further inland, filtering, drying, milling and mixing the raw materials, as well as disposing of the residue from incineration and flue gas treatment and providing on-site logistics at power plants. Such a broad spectrum of services calls for a great many employees with the experience and commitment to match. Soon, you could be one of them.
Of course, there is a big difference between moving goods and moving people. Still, our longstanding logistics expertise stands us in good stead when it comes to providing safe, sophisticated passenger transportation models. We already successfully operate a number of regional public transportation bus and rail services-for example, in Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany. Day in, day out, our fleet of over 50 buses in Bad Kreuznach shows passengers and owners alike just how compatible comfort and efficiency can be. This is also your chance to come aboard and help us enhance mobility.
We are always open to change. Just ask our customers all over the world, who appreciate our flexibility in carrying out logistics projects. And our employees, who value the broad spectrum of opportunities we offer for fast career growth without unnecessary hurdles. When you join us, how do we support you? With enthusiasm and involvement-and most of all, with a tried-and-trusted system. It starts with regular feedback and appraisals with your supervisors. And goes on to include an array of courses and development programs, such as training in your specific field as well as to hone your social, methodological and management skills-all in line with your personal needs and career level.
Why do we do all that? Because we firmly believe that only people with strong prospects are strong performers. They stride toward the future equipped with self-confidence and solid skills. It is how we keep Rhenus, together, on the path to success and ensure long-term stability and growth.
