There has been an immense rise in demand for international cargo transport in the South Asian region, especially the SAARC nations. Seizing the opportunity, global logistics and supply chain pioneer Rhenus Logistics has announced the expansion of its Cross Border Trucking (CBT) consolidated services to Bangladesh, Bhutan and Nepal. This move will be an addition to its already incumbent multimodal stronghold in South Asian countries.
Cross border trucking is often referred to as the ‘Golden Means’ of transport as it can prove to be the most cost-efficient and fastest mode of transport as compared to air and water freight transportation. The CBT function of Rhenus Logistics – when integrated with door-to-door services, seamless IT integration, round the clock customs clearance and easy availability of containerized trucks – becomes well-equipped to cater to transportation needs of oversized, high value and other sensitive freight. Such a plethora of perks makes CBT from India to Bangladesh, Nepal and Bhutan, the perfect cost-saving logistics solution.
Our expertise will allow us to identify the shortest routes possible, and carefully manage resources. As we continue to see a shortage of ocean containers in the region, this will provide a viable alternative that lowers cost and risks, satisfy customer requirements, give complete visibility, and contribute to a better environment.”~ Mr. Parikshith Arya, Jt. MD, Rhenus Logistics India
Along with providing a smooth logistics system, the Rhenus advantage includes a number of value-added services like customs clearance, smart features along the supply chain, chemical/petro/agro transportation and transport insurance. Shipments are secured in air suspension trailers, protected with smart locks and monitored using GPS and CCTVs. Rhenus operates CBT in 8 neighbouring Southeast Asian countries and utilizes its warehouse network across the APAC region. On a global level, with 820 sites, Rhenus Logistics offers solutions for a wider range of industries.
