Rhenus Ireland has officially opened a brand-new Dublin facility. Strategically located at the centre of all main motorways into and out of Dublin, 11 kilometres from Dublin airport and 22 kilometres from the city’s port, the new site will significantly boost Rhenus Ireland’s storage capacity.

The opening was marked by an open day, with key clients, longstanding suppliers along with local council representation in attendance. Rhenus provided an exclusive glimpse of the cutting-edge warehouse and offices for its clients and partners. Extending to an impressive 11,150 square metres, the expansion is a significant milestone for Rhenus Ireland.

The new facility will provide increasingly integrated management of the company’s portfolio services across sectors, including energy management, life sciences and healthcare, industrial, retail, chemicals, food and beverage and automotive, in addition to a wide range of critical local industries.

Fitted to LEED gold standard, the new site features 12 dock levellers, two grade levels doors and a 17-metre clear internal height, supported by a warehouse roof and an in-rack sprinkler system. Additionally, the new facility boasts a dedicated ambient chamber, where temperature is mapped and monitored to pharmaceutical standards. It will be operated by 65 experienced members of staff.

The move follows the Rhenus Ireland announcement earlier this year confirming the doubling in capacity of the Parkmore campus in Galway to an impressive 20,000 square metres. This expansion was following on from Rhenus Ireland’s acquisition of Galway-based ISO-registered and AEO-certified business Source & Supply Logistics in 2021.

Declan Sinnott, Managing Director of Rhenus Ireland, said: “I am pleased to confirm the opening of our new Dublin facility which is designed to enhance our service offerings and extend the services we deliver to our customers across a wide range of industries. Coupled with our continued investment in our Galway operation earlier this year, the opening of the Dublin facility is yet another statement of our continued commitment to support the Rhenus customers in the Irish Market.”

Open day attendees had the opportunity to explore the range of services offered, including groupage, LTL, FTL, distribution freight services, storage, pick and pack, production logistics, specialised logistics, bonded services, customs and bespoke supply chain design solutions. In addition, bespoke supply chain design and control tower solutions were also showcased.

Rhenus Ireland provides a comprehensive suite of services to customers across various industries. With state-of-the-art facilities strategically located in Dublin and Galway, Rhenus Ireland is committed to delivering supply chain excellence and driving business success.
