Rhenus Logistics is launching operations in eastern Canada for the project logistics and offshore market with two new business sites in Halifax and St. John’s.

The company said in a release that it plans to focus on the emerging renewable energy sector in Newfoundland.

The eastern Canadian provinces of Newfoundland and Nova Scotia on the Atlantic coast are home to a significant amount of oil, gas, and offshore companies. Some of the most important industrial corporations have launched business operations in this traditional market region, including long-established partners of Rhenus.

With two business sites in Halifax and St. John’s, Rhenus will now offer its services in the epicenter of project logistics and offshore markets in the Canadian Atlantic area.

“At Rhenus, we have years of offshore industry experience in the Middle East and Europe, and we are now extending our knowledge and solutions to the Canadian Atlantic region,” said Jeffery Haley, director of global projects at Rhenus Logistics Canada.

“Canada is approving the development and growth of offshore projects, and Rhenus can be a part of expanding renewable energy sources with the help of our services and team of experts.”

Rhenus is planning to expand its service operations related to onshore, offshore, project logistics and transportation with customs clearance in eastern Canada in the future. Traditional sectors such as fish farming and agriculture are also very promising industrial segments for Rhenus in Newfoundland. 

Rhenus Canada currently operates in Montreal, Toronto, and Vancouver, providing logistics solutions via air, road, ocean, and rail for various industries such as e-commerce, fashion, retail, automotive, and more. The Rhenus Canada service portfolio also includes warehouse fulfillment and distribution, customs clearance, and project logistics.

The Germany-based company bought Canadian logistics provider Rodair in 2019, and rebranded its North American operations as Rhenus Logistics in 2021. The company acquired Freight Logistics International, Pirâmide SeaAir and Rodair in 2018 and 2019 as part of an expansion plan.

The Rhenus Group’s global business operations generate an annual turnover of  seven billion euros, and employ 37,500 employees at 970 locations.
