Rhenus Plans a New Business Site in Kazakhstan
The Rhenus Group is planning to expand its activities in Kazakhstan and is intending to establish a business site and container depot in the industrial city of Karaganda. The Member of the Rhenus Group Management Board, Michael Viefers, told the Kazakh President, Kassym-Jomart Tokayev, about this at a meeting on the fringes of the Munich Security Conference on February.
The transport infrastructure in Kazakhstan has been extensively modernised to enable the country to act as a hub along the Chinese Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), Rhenus explains. The connections between the Chinese province of Jiangsu and Rotterdam in the Netherlands as well as along the Xinjiang, Iran and Turkey corridor are particularly important here. More than half of all the goods trains operating between China and Europe pass through the world’s largest land-locked country.
