10 / 06 / 2020
Rhenus Air & Ocean has moved from Herstal in Belgium to a new location at Liège Airport, as cargo volumes handled by the airport continue to grow.
The forwarder said that with 900,000 tonnes of cargo transported each year, Liège Airport (LGG) is Belgium’s largest airfreight airport and the fastest growing cargo airport in Europe.
“A large number of large airline and charter companies such as Qatar Airways, AirBridgeCargo and Ethiopian Airlines use Liège as a European hub and connect the location with numerous regions worldwide,” the forwarder said.
The company added that the airport is strategically located in the golden triangle between Amsterdam, Frankfurt and Paris.
In the new branch, Rhenus Air & Ocean intends to offer multimodal solutions and expand Rhenus’ global airfreight network.
Frank Roderkerk, chief executive of Rhenus Air & Ocean Northern Europe, said: “In addition to the attractive flight schedules, Liège Airport has a very good multimodal connection, so that in the future we will be able to offer our customers more ocean freight and airfreight and rail freight products. Several trains a week connect Liège along the Landbridge to China, including Yiwu and Zhengzhou.”
The new office will also offer customs clearance and fiscal representation.
