Top Service by logistics expert Rhenus


In production, all of the gears must mesh with one another. Indispensable here: A logistics partner that brings all the parts to the belt right on time. For 30 years, Rhenus has worked hand-in-hand with production – and provided top service daily.

Rhenus SE & Co. KG guarantees the smooth, efficient supply of Mercedes-Benz production. Material must be conveyed from external and internal warehouses on the plant premises to the place where it will be used. Services are performed along the entire supply chain: From incoming goods to warehouse management, sorting, and sometimes partial assembly, on through to delivery to the belt – punctually and on call. A breakdown costs time and money. Rhenus’s optimal warehouse management helps Daimler to minimize costs and achieve the planned quantities without interruptions in the flow of goods.


The best logistics service every day. This is possible thanks to Rhenus’s engaged employees and it is inspired by the promise of the Rhenus Group. The logistics expert regards itself as Daimler’s value-creation partner: with extensive expertise in the automotive sector – and the ability to actively optimize logistics processes with individual solutions.

We stand for collaborative, solution-oriented cooperation: Reliability, quality and innovation come first. Daimler is a very demanding partner that motivates us to become better every day.

Klemens Rethmann, CEO of Rhenus SE und Co. KG


Passion and quality: The logistics expert prevails with exemplary plant logistics.

Rhenus has served Daimler for decades. Starting in the Mercedes-Benz plant in Stuttgart-Untertürkheim, today the companies’ cooperation extends to many European and all German locations. For example, Rhenus supplies all of production in the Hamburg plant and the pressing plant in Bremen, among others. The logistics expert also shows its strengths during production start-ups for new projects, for example at the Daimler subsidiary MDC Power Kölleda or in the Gaggenau plant. With digitalization and the growing number of Mercedes-Benz models, the requirements posed of logistics continue to increase – complex tasks that Daimler and Rhenus will also have to master together in the future.


Good reasons for presenting the Daimler Supplier Award to this logistics service provider. On the afternoon of February 23, 2016, it was finally time! Together with nine other suppliers, Rhenus was in the spotlight. In front of chairmen and CEOs from the supplier industry, Daimler chairmen and purchasing managers awarded the prizes.

Rhenus is a strategic partner for us. With us, and with true passion, Rhenus takes on this challenges day after day and supplies the beating heart of our production. Every part counts.
