German logistics group to enter Australian market

German logistics specialist the Rhenus Group signed an agreement to purchase Australian freight forwarding company O’Brien Customs and Forwarding Pty Ltd on 16 June, as part of its expansion strategy in the Asia-Pacific region.
The Melbourne-headquartered O’Brien family business handles air and sea freight consignments and provides customs and warehouse services. It was initially founded as a customs clearance firm in 1996 and has been offering air and sea freight transportation in addition to customs services for seven years.
The Rhenus Group is planning to expand the firm’s current operations in future with its network and its services, including domestic traffic, support for imports/exports, buyers’ consolidation as well as warehouse and integrated logistics solutions.
“The takeover of O’Brien and the founding of the national company to be known as Rhenus Logistics Australia enable us to cover the whole of Australia with our services,” said Jan Harnisch, COO, Ocean Freight – Asia, Rhenus. “As a result of the acquisition, we’re gaining experienced employees with local expertise for the global operations of the Air & Ocean business unit at Rhenus Freight Logistics too.”
