The Rhenus Group has expanded its UK network by taking over the Manchester-based Network 4 Home Delivery at the start of this month.
In addition to its Manchester headquarters, the company has other business sites in Milton Keynes and in the London area.
The acquisition marks the market entry for Rhenus Home Delivery in the UK.
“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,” said Nicolas Rottmann, Managing Director of Rhenus Home Delivery. “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.”
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.
