Rhenus India earlier this month inaugurated a modern 300,000-sqm multi-user facility in the Indian city of Bhiwandi as it looks to focus on providing warehouse services for the chemical and petrochemical sector alongside industrial, engineering and manufacturing.
This modern warehouse, strategically located near the financial and business city of Mumbai in the west of India, features a warehouse management system to provide end-to-end visibility, along with fully equipped loading and unloading docks, as well as new racking and material handling equipment to support speedy storage and retrieval of goods. It also fully complies with the latest global standards for health, safety and the environment (HSE).
Rhenus Logistics has been actively establishing its footprint in India with the opening of another multi-user facility in Jumalpur (Delhi NCR) in August. Its warehousing solutions division now has 31 business sites with total warehouse space measuring more than 2.5 million square feet in the country.
The company paid importance to sustainability in developing the new warehouse building in Mumbai, which features solar panels and rainwater recycling. It said the new warehouse aims to meet the fast-changing needs of brands across industries like chemical and petrochemicals, FMCG, retail, 3PL, industrial and manufacturing. Covestro, a leading manufacturer of high-tech polymer materials with headquarters in Leverkusen in Germany, is the flagship customer in the new warehouse facility.
