Rhenus Campus Focuses on Environmental, Social Aspects
Rhenus Warehousing Solutions UK, a well-known logistics company, has reached a major construction milestone at its new building at Baytree in Nuneaton. The company celebrated the roof installation on the second warehouse in partnership with Baytree Logistics Developments, the developer of the project.
The 'Rhenus Campus' is a new sustainable development that will house two large warehouses, covering a total area of one million square feet, equivalent to 36 football pitches. The second warehouse is the larger of the two distribution centres, spanning 771,000 square feet, while the first warehouse, which measures 210,000 square feet, had its roof installed in October 2022.
The campus aims to cater to customers in various sectors, such as fashion and apparel, health and beauty, toys, homeware, and consumer goods, offering them exceptional service, innovative warehousing, and distribution solutions. Rhenus uses the latest emerging technologies to ensure efficient storage, B2B and B2C order fulfilment, value-added services, and comprehensive returns management.
In addition to its business operations, the 'Rhenus Campus' will also prioritise environmental and social aspects. The development will generate renewable energy on-site, enabling customers to attain their own net-zero targets while ensuring that the facility remains climate-neutral.
Kerry Delaney, Regional Managing Director North-West Europe at Rhenus Warehousing Solutions UK, said: “We are very proud to have celebrated another major milestone at our ‘Rhenus Campus’. It’s a hugely exciting time for us at Rhenus now that the second warehouse’s structure has been completed, and we’re looking forward to officially opening the campus later this year. This development will enable us to easily meet growing demand, exceed our customers’ expectations and help us positively impact the environment – something which is very close to our hearts.”
Amit Babbar, UK Development Director at Baytree, said: “This is another major milestone for one of the leading ESG-focused developments in the industrial and logistics sector. Baytree are very proud to support Rhenus in achieving outstanding environmental and social performance at the new Rhenus Campus.”
