On January 1, 2017, Raben Trans European Germany took over operations of former Rhenus branches located in Fellbach and in Weilimdorf. The acquisition had been approved by antitrust authorities. The purchase agreement for the locations was signed in July 21, 2016. Raben Group will continue operations in these branches under its own name.
Raben Group is consolidating its network in southern Germany by taking over these business sites which specialise in domestic groupage transports. There will be no changes to the contact persons for the customers.
“The region around Stuttgart is one of the strongest economic metropolitan areas and one of the major high-tech sites in Europe. We are doing all in our power to successfully continue the long-standing customer relations at those locations and to further expand them,” says Ewald Raben, CEO Raben Group.
Customers of the branches in Fellbach and in Weilimdorf are mainly from the automotive, retail and healthcare sectors. They are predominantly small and medium enterprises. Fellbach had already been a partner in the Raben Trans European network prior to the acquisition. Both branches have logistics centres and cross-dock warehouses.
