LBH and Rhenus target waterway market

Port services provider LBH Group is planning to form a joint venture with logistics service provider Rhenus in the European inland waterway shipping sector.

 

Thomas Maassen, managing director of Rhenus Port Logistics, said: “By cooperating with LBH, we’d like to significantly strengthen our joint position at Rotterdam. We’ll therefore be able to offer the customers of both the LBH Group and the Rhenus Group an even more efficient and flexible range of services in future than we’ve done in the past.”

The two partners intend to establish the joint venture’s legal structure in the coming weeks; the deal has yet to be approved by competition authorities.
