The Rhenus Group has expanded its network in Great Britain by taking over Network 4 Home Delivery. Rhenus Home Delivery, the specialist for final deliveries to customers, acquired the British service provider for two-man handling, which has its headquarters in Manchester, on 1 February.
In addition to having its headquarters in Manchester, the company has other business sites in Milton Keynes and in the London area. The acquisition of the service provider, which was founded more than ten years ago, represents the market entry for Rhenus Home Delivery in Great Britain.
‘The e-commerce business is growing in Great Britain far faster than in the rest of Europe and this offers us the opportunities to introduce our logistics expertise. We can cover the complete British market with Network 4 Home Delivery and offer complete international solutions and additional services like customs clearance for goods to customers within the Rhenus Group’s network,’ says Nicolas Rottmann, Managing Director of Rhenus Home Delivery.
Network 4 Home Delivery mainly handles the delivery and installation of beds and mattresses at the moment – but also white goods and furniture items. The company also provides environmentally-friendly disposal and return services for mattresses and old furniture.
