Freight forwarder the Rhenus group has opened another office in Busan today following the launch of services in South Korea in November.
The company said it would provide air and seafreight services from the new office, which will also handle project business for the oil and gas industry, provide third-party logistics services and operate domestic services.
“We now have our own branch in the south of the country in addition to the capital Seoul. We can offer our logistics services from here and continue to broaden them. The new business site therefore matches the ongoing expansion of our Asian network,” said Tobias Bartz, the Rhenus Board Member responsible for Asia.
The company said that in addition to trade with Europe, Busan is also an important hub for traffic to Japan and Greater China. It is famous for its ship building industry.
"The Asia-Pacific region is a huge driving force for growth. Rhenus has been investing in the expansion of its activities there by opening new business sites for several years," the forwarder said.
